Abstract (in English): 

"The Twentieth Century Performance Reader provides a pioneering introduction to all types of performance - dance, drama, music, opera and live art. It presents a selection of texts by over thirty practitioners, critics and theorists, which together affirm performance as a discipline in its own terms. The Twentieth Century Performance Reader features: contextual summaries and suggestions for further reading; a definitive bibliography; and an invaluable contextual summary of the field." "Organised alphabetically rather than chronologically or according to art form, The Twentieth Century Performance Reader invites cross-disciplinary comparisons. Here, together in one volume, are all the major statements on performance written this century: from Adolph Appia to Laurie Anderson."--Jacket.
