Performance Research Books: a review of the latest publication

“In Worlds, Bodies, Matters: Theatre of the Late Twentieth Century, Valentina Valentini provides an accessible and systematic study of late-twentieth century Western theatre with an emphasis on its relations with and influences from visual arts and new media. This study offers a comprehensive critical analysis of a complex array of artistic and postdramatic theatre practices richly illustrated with photographs of historical and contemporary events.

Valentini leads the reader on a previously uncharted journey through the fragmented identities and uncertainties of our time, offering a generative summary of many key narratives and philosophical ideas that have shaped European culture of the late twentieth
century.”
