About this book

Theatre's Heterotopias analyses performance space, using the concept of heterotopia: a location that, when apparent in performance, refers to the actual world, thus activating performance in its culture. Case studies cover site-specific and multimedia performance, and selected productions from the National Theatre of Scotland and the Globe Theatre.

Her research addresses spatiality, the digital humanities, and theatre's engagement with cultural politics.

Reviews

“Theatre’s Heterotopias is a rigorous and disciplined study of a high scholarly standard, but it is also intelligent and flexible in its approach, combining extended intellectual work with rich experiential material. … book is an important and original, erudite but graceful contribution to theatre studies and all those variously involved in the theory and practice of the field, but it can also be used productively in other domains of spatial development and construction beyond the boundaries of theatre and performance.” (Elizabeth Sakellaridou, Journal of Contemporary Drama in English, Vol. 4 (2), November, 2016)



'Theatre's Heterotopias offers the most rigorous and nuanced examination of heterotopia in performance to date. Joanne Tompkins systematically attends to the complex spatiality of theatre and is sensitive to the ambivalences and ambiguities that theatrical heterotopias entail. Where theatre and performance studies has taken heterotopia too much for granted, Theatre's Heterotopias takes it seriously.' - Michael McKinnie, Queen Mary, University of London, UK
