Performance Research Volume 10 Issue 2

On Form/Yet to Come

Issue editors: Ric Allsopp with Emil Hrvatin & Goran Sergej Pristaš

ISBN: 978-0-415-37375

On Form focuses on discourses and practices in contemporary performance arts that impact on and relate to social, political, cultural forms and structures: in relation to the positioning of aesthetic forms, to local and geographical difference, to the re-mapping and re-configuring of 'east' and 'west' europe, to the similarities and differences in assumptions about form and relational structures within an apparently shared 'european’ or 'international' framework. On Form is a joint editorial project with the Slovenian performing arts journal 'Maska' (Ljubljana), and the Croatian performing arts magazine 'Frakcija' (Zagreb) whose editors will contribute substantial sections on the theme that exemplify current thinking and practice in the arts as well as profiling these two important European publications.
