the Shakespearean still image, broadly defined. In accordance with
SB's performance-focused interest in theatre history, contemporary
performance, and film, we seek a range of articles that take
divergent approaches to stillness and the still in relation to
performance: performance-related woodcuts or drawings; stillness and
stasis in theatrical performance or film ("frozen" moments;
tableaux); the photographic still in theatre or film.
