About this book

This international collection of essays forms a vibrant picture of the scope and diversity of contemporary queer performance.

Reviews

“Queer Dramaturgies brings together a collection of essays, by both up-and-coming and established queer scholars, specializing in the study of the live experience of queer performances rather than textual or abstract theoretical analysis. … Queer Dramaturgies delivers a fresh smattering of essays valuable to queer studies, performance studies, and any amalgam of the two.” (Helen Deborah Lewis, Studies in Theatre and Performance, August, 2016)

“Alyson Campbell and Stephen Farrier bring together the work of international performance scholars and makers in a meticulously edited and necessary volume which offers productive new ways of identifying, historicizing, theorizing, and analyzing what makes dramaturgy queer. … The volume thus offers a vibrant look at the scope and diversity of contemporary queer performance, providing an accessible book and inspiration for undergraduates, and a reminder for more experienced performance scholars and makers about why queer performance matters.” (Francisco Costa, New Theatre Quarterly, July, 2016)
