Book Description

Dec 21 2011 0415895456 978-0415895453

The intersections of religion, politics, and performance form the loci of many of the most serious issues facing the world today, sites where some of the world’s most pressing and momentous events are contested and played out. That this circumstance warrants continued, thoughtful, and imaginative engagement from those within the fields of theatre and performance is one of the guiding principles of this volume. This collection features a diverse set of perspectives, written by some of the top scholars in the relevant fields, on the many modern intersections of religion with theatre and performance. Contributors argue that religion can no longer be conceived of as a cultural phenomenon that is safely sequestered in the "private sphere." It is instead an explicitly public force that stimulates and complicates public actions, and thus a crucial component of much performance. From mystic theologies of acting to the neuroscience of spirituality in rituals to the performance of secularism, these essays address a broad variety of religious traditions, sharing a common conception of religion as a crucial object of discourse—one that is formed by, and significantly formative of, performance.

Product Description

Review

'This new anthology provides a vital call for more research and dialogue in the increasingly important intersections of religion, theatre, and performance. With this collection, Gharavi perceptively argues the essential importance of religious studies to theatre/performance studies, and vice versa.' Bradley Stephensen, University of Missouri Columbia, Ecumenica

'This is a rich volume. It mixes well-established scholars with new voices to offer insights into a number of research approaches and standpoints, belief practices and cultural formations. And in so doing, it engages sensitively with the challenging areas of politics and identity, diaspora and discourse.' Sarah Goldingay, Studies in Theatre and Performance
