Product Description

Appearing at the end of the year 2000, in an era that many cultural commentators have characterized as suffering from a pervasive amnesia, the issue will reflect on the use of performance as a means for cultures across the world to define themselves. It will explore the impact of the forces of memory on performance in culture, examining the implications of these forces for the ways in which we resolve the past, foresee the future and construct our individual and national identities. In this context, the issue will question how the dynamics of memory, remembrance and forgetting relate to the aesthetics of performance.
