On America will respond to the powerful presence in contemporary culture of aesthetic forms and political strategies derived from North America. Counterpointing Letters from Europe, the issue will address the use and abuse of images of and from North America, the deconstruction in performance theory and practice of North American art, film and performance, and the presentation of America as genre and fiction. With contributions from theatre-makers, artists, theorists and critics outside North America, as well as those working on the cultural and aesthetic fringes within the Americas, the issue will debate the influence of North American cultural products and practices, providing a forum for debate over cultural hegemony and displacement, identity and aesthetic practice.
