While performers and performances are on the move as never before, corresponding forms of performance analysis and research are arguably still getting out of the starting blocks. On the Road presents a selection of arguments and analyses that underscore the experience of mobility and the actuality of travel as integral to the production and reception of theatre and performance. It asserts that the rapid and sizeable recent increase in the volume and extent of human mobility represents an excellent opportunity for new understandings of what constitutes the field (a tellingly enclosed term) of theatre and performance studies. The international experience of theatre-makers and spectacle-mongers, and the internationalized predisposition of their audiences raises new questions about authenticity, originality, sites, sights, spaces, places, languages, translations, transports, training, funding, tours, tourism, taboos, environments, ecologies, identities and itineraries. On the Road provides one route to finding some answers.
