9780859897945: Theatres of the Troubles: Theatre, Resistance and Liberation in Ireland (Exeter Performance Studies)

The emergence of Ireland’s grassroots popular theatre is inexorably linked to the struggles of the working-class Republicans and Loyalists of Derry and Belfast—with performances unfolding in and around the latest phase of the four-hundred-year conflict between Britain and Ireland. Theatres of the Troubles conveys how the moment-to-moment unfolding of the conflict determined the organization, texts, performance contexts and receptions, and larger operations of these theatres in the Republican and Loyalist communities. Drawing upon previously unpublished primary sources—including texts, interviews, workshops, and letters—this volume examines how these theatres related to each other,  to the European tradition of radical theatre, and to the models of liberation which were developing in the postcolonial context of the Republic. Theatres of Troubles represents a key addition to our understanding of the critical relationship between historical conditions and the development of radical theatre forms, while at the same time telling the story of a people who tried to engage theatre in a volatile, complex, and rapidly recontextualizing political situation.

About the Author:

Bill McDonnell is senior lecturer in theatre at the University of Sheffield.

Review:

`...a valuable document about grassroots, working-class community theatre in Northern Ireland.' `...methodologically sound and historically extremely interesting.' The Journal of Theatre Research International, Sruti Bala, Volume 35/1 - 2010 `It is of course particularly difficult to recapture performances by community theatres.' `McDonnell's book is a superb example of how such difficulties can be overcome.' `One of the text's most appealing characteristics is the constant sense that McDonnell is deeply engaged with the material he is researching: he is himself an important presence in the book.' Contemporary Theatre Review, Volume 19(4), 2009, Patrick Lonergan `Of vital importance for students and researchers interested in the politics of theatre in the UK and Ireland... a significant contribution to the body of scholarship....compelling...a timely book, providing a provocative perspective on political theatre during the first decade of the new century as well as drawing attention to a neglected and important period of theatre history'. New Theatre Quarterly, 2010, Jenny Hughes `McDonnell's excellent book.... opening up a fascinating terrain for future scholars... stands as a testament to the courage of communities making work in the face of political crisis, and equally speaks to the methodological challenges of thinking through the tensions and contradictions in the work of living theatre'. `McDonnell [...] offers an extremely useful resource for scholars, drawing from previously unused archival sources' The Drama Review, Volume 56, No 2, Summer 2012, Aoife Monks

Descrizione libro UNIVERSITY OF EXETER PRESS, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first book to document grass roots popular theatres which developed from within the working class Republican and Loyalist communities of Belfast and Derry during the latest phase of the four hundred year conflict between Ireland and Britain. Theatres of the Troubles explores the history of one of the most important periods of political theatre activity in post-war Europe. This significant study seeks to convey how the moment to moment unfolding of the conflict determined organisation, `texts , performance contexts and reception, and how the theatres operated within Republican and Loyalist communities. All chapters draw upon previously unpublished primary sources, including texts, interviews and letters, shared workshops and witnessed performance. In examining not only how these theatres related to each other, but also their relationship to European traditions of radical theatre and to the liberation models which were developing in neo- and post-colonial contexts in the South, Theatres of the Troubles represents a key addition to our understanding of the critical relationship between historical conditions and the development of radical theatre forms.
