HASH(0x9d9bc528) out of 5 stars Folklore as performance June 11 2011
By Christopher R. Travers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This short paperback discusses various aspects of verbal art, particularly in the folklore and folktale context, as performance rather than simply as repository of lore. The first essay lays out a basic theory as well as some aspects of performance theory as applied to performances of folktales. The supplemental essays expand on these points and provide examples in action.

Although the book is short, it is also dense and rich, providing great opportunities to rethink how we address traditional storytelling. Great book, and if it is of interest, I'd also recommend: The Singer of Tales

By Lucio Agra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One of the seminal texts about the theme, a source to the researchs in linguistics and arts fields. It has been also running as a reference to performance art and performance studies.
