Theatrical Fields brings together a selection of seminal texts, commissioned essays and exhibition materials that explore the political potential of ʻtheatricalityʼ.

This reader stems from a long-term curatorial research examining the deep-rooted connection between theatre and theory, juxtaposing artists and theoreticians from different generations and backgrounds who share a communal interest in the ʻtheatricalityʼ as a methodology to address questions of ideology, gender, power and resistance.

In this conception, ʻtheatricalityʼ does not refer strictly only to the theatre and the theatrical arts; rather, it also points to the constructedness of everyday life. Theatrical forms make visible how our realities are staged, and also how our histories are constructed and performed.

This reader has been conceived and edited by renowned curator, Ute Meta Bauer – Artistic Director of the 3rd Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2004); Co-Curator of documenta 11 (2001/2002); Professor and Dean of the School of Fine Art at the Royal College of Art, London (2012/2013); and since 2005 she has been an Associate Professor at MIT, Cambridge, United States.

Includes texts by: Antonin Artaud, Mikhail Bakhtin, Ute Meta Bauer, Bertolt Brecht, Giuliana Bruno, Jacques Derrida, Regis Durand, Josette Féral, Jean-François Lyotard, Eva Meyer, Timothy Murray, Katarina Pierre, Katharina Sykora, Marina Warner
