Directing StageMatrix * Showcases * The field of performance studies covers all kinds of performance behavior in all contexts. This volume investigates performance behavior in a variety of circumstances and cultures. The contributors consider such issues as the relationship between training and the finished performance; whether performance behavior is universal or culturally specific; and the relationships among ritual and aesthetics, popular entertainment and religion, and sports and theater and dance.

Modern Drama in Theory and Practice: Volume 3, Expressionism and Epic Theatre (Modern Drama in Theory & Practice) Büchner is the forerunner of expression, followed by Wedekind and Strindberg. The style is then traced from Kaiser and Toller to O'Neill, Wilder and the later O'Casey. Important producers are Reinhardt and Meyerhold. Epic theatre is studied from Piscator and Brecht to Dürrenmatt and Weiss, Arden and Bond, and is seen as flourishing in the more recent offshoots of documentary theatre.

Radio Drama: Theory and Practice Radio Drama brings together the practical skills needed for radio drama, sucha s directing, writing and sound design, with media history and communication theory. From the early audio broadcasts of 1914 and the development of General Electric's New York WGY station in 1922, through Orson Welles' startling Halloween broadcast of War of the Worlds in 1938, to more recent radio spoofs and the subversive challenge from 'media guerillas', Tim Crook explores the history and contemporary practice of radio drama. Challenging the belief that sound drama is a 'blind medium', Radio Drama shows how experimentation in radio narrative has blurred the dividing line between fiction and reality in modern media. Using extracts from scripts and analysing radio broadcasts from America, Britain, Canada and Australia, the book explores the practicalities of producing drama for radio. Tim Crook illustrates how far radio drama has developed sinc the first 'audiophonic production' and evaluates the future of radio drama in the age of live phone-ins and immediate access to programmes on the Internet.
