About this book

A rigorous ethnography of three international theatre festivals spanning the Portuguese-speaking world, this book examines the potential for African theatre artists to generate meaningful cultural and postcolonial dialogues in festival venues despite the challenges posed by a global arts market.

Reviews

"Recasting Transnationalism through Performance is a smart, nuanced, and compelling exploration of nation and transnation in African and Lusophone contexts. Christina McMahon's deep understanding of transnational alliances and frictions works in tandem with rich ethnographic detail; the result is a book that transcends disciplinary boundaries in its theoretical appeal." - Laura Edmondson, Darthmouth College, USA

'In the field of Lusophone cultural studies there is nothing comparable to McMahon's study. It stands alone as a most unique and necessary contribution.' - Fernando Arenas, University of Michigan, USA
