Including material from internationally renowned artists and scholars, yet also featuring some of the most provocative new voices in the field, this substantial peer-reviewed journal explores the unsettled boundaries, rapidly changing practices, and shifting definitions at play within the world of contemporary performance. Making innovative connections between theatre, dance, music, time-based and live art, Performance Research speaks to a broad readership of academics, practitioners, critics, and students interested in the relation between performance practice and research. In addition to in-depth essays, editorial comment, and book and performance reviews, each issue initiates new ways of addressing established forms of performance through the inclusion of extensive visual material, performance documentation and commissioned art works for the page.
