CALL FOR PAPERS: Edited Collection

Sporting Theatre(s)

The field of performance studies casts a wide net, incorporating the study
of expressive culture in many forms, from ritual and play to politics and
theatreâ€"always with a special focus on performance as the object of
analysis. This collection considers the relationship between two kinds of
performance: theatre and sport. The two fields share attributes, including
physical training and preparation; the idea of a "virtuoso performance";
the drawing in of the audience to fully achieve the performer's goal; and
the increasing "democratization" of performance in the emergence of local,
organized sports teams and the alternative theatre movement.
