18.6 On Ice



Issue editor: Richard Gough

SKU: 1352-8165 (2013) 18:6 Category:


What possibilities exist for theatre and performance to take on the condition of ice? Strength and fragility, exquisite structure yet impermanence, ephemerality and transience, embodying cool detachment, able to suspend and release time in unmeasured duration, retaining disinterest and distance? Complementing the recent issue ‘On Fire’ (PR 18:1) which opened this volume, ‘On Ice’ includes reflective and speculative works for the page on performance and ice as well as historical accounts and in-­depth critiques of ice and theatre across time and cultures, from ritual to folk customs, to performance art, civic ceremony, climate-­change awareness and the use of ice and performance in acts of protest, contemplation, resistance and defiance.
