How can an understanding of theatre in the city help us make sense of urban social experience?

Theatre& the City explores how relationships between theatre, performance and the city affect social power dynamics, ideologies and people’s sense of identity. The book evaluates both material conditions (such as architecture) and performative practices (such as urban activism) to argue that both these categories contribute to the complex economies and ecologies of theatre and performance in an increasingly urbanised world.
