It brings to bear the latest theoretical approaches from post-colonial and performance studies to a range of plays from Australia, Africa, Canada, New Zealand, the Caribbean and other former colonial regions. Some of the major topics discussed in Post-Colonial Drama include: the interactions of post-colonial and performance theories; the post-colonial re-stagings of language and history; the specific enactments of ritual and carnival; the theatrical citations of the post-colonial body. The book combines a rich intersection of theoretical approaches with close attention to a wide range of performance texts.List of illustrations AcknowledgementsIntroduction: re-acting (to) EmpireRe-citing the classics: canonical counter-discourseCounter-discourse and the canon Shakespeare's legacy Replaying The Tempest Crusoe and Friday Classical Greek influences Reworking Christian myths Replacing the canonTraditional enactments: ritual and carnivalRitual Ritual-centred plays Ritual elements/ritual contexts Carnival Carnival logics Carnival playsPost-colonial historiesFracturing colonialist history Women's histories Story-telling "Time span Spatial histories "Theatre spacesThe languages of resistanceIndigenous languages and translation Indigenised languages Creole and Pidgin Silence Song and musicBody politicsRace Gender Derogated bodies Metamorphic bodies Dancing bodies Framed bodiesNeo-imperialismsInternal colonialism Regional neo-imperialism Global neo-imperialism TourismA provisional conclusionBibliography Index
