World Encyclopedia of Contemporary Theatre: Volume 6: Bibliography and Cumulative Index

Irving Brown (Consulting Bibliographer), Natasha Rappaport (Bibliographer), Don Rubin (General Editor), Rosabel Wang (Consulting Bibliographer)

The World Encyclopedia of Contemporary Theatre is the first truly inter-cultural and non-colonial world map of theatrical activity to be published. As such it provides an articulation of the theatrical and performative world-wide which is free of value judgements. The period covered is essentially the second half of the twentieth century but much of the material dates much further back allowing the contemporary theatre researcher to draw on related materials giving deeper insight into the period under examination. Volume 6: Bibliography and Cumulative Index represents the culmination of this unique project. The emphasis of this volume is once again on nations and their theatres and many books are listed here for the first time in an internationally-published reference work. This monumental volume provides an annotated world theatre bibliography documenting significant theatre materials published world-wide since 1945, plus an index to key names throughout the six volumes of the series. Key features:* indispensable for users of volumes 1-5 * more than 5000 bibliographic entries * structure of the bibliography points readers to the most relevant titles: general sources and then thematic sources * includes further reading from all five volumes and thousands of additional sources which could not fit into the individual volumes * cumulative index provides guidance for users of the complete set, allowing readers to track themes throughout the volumes Key headings include:* international studies * national studies * geographical regions * cultural and linguistic groupings * gender, style, theory and criticism * gender studies, women’s/feminist theatre and drama, gay and lesbian theatre * philosophy, psychology and drama therapy * acting and directing * costume, set/ scenography and lighting design * puppetry and masks Countries covered include: * Argentina * Bulgaria * Congo * Finland * Haiti * Japan * Malaysia * Nigeria * Peru * Russia * Singapore * Tunisia * USA * Vietnam * Zaire
