Performance Research Volume 11 Issue 3

A Lexicon

Issue editors: Ric Allsopp & David Williams

ISBN: 978-0-415-40510

This issue will survey the way words, vocabularies and discourses are changing, through attending to terms that are contested or in flux, and that in their current usage signify some of the preoccupations of the artistic, political and intellectual cultures of which they are a key part. A Lexicon consists of key terms and concepts from practitioners, theorists and activists currently working in the field of contemporary performance arts and research. Its contents will include polemic and manifesto as well as analysis and reflection, and take the form of dictionary-style entries, letters to readers, images and sets of instructions.
