The new Contemporary Theatre Review will analyse what is most passionate and vital in theatre today. It plans to encompass a wide variety of theatres, from new playwrights and devisors to theatres of movement, image and other forms of physical expression, from new acting methods to music theatre and multi-media production work. Recognising the plurality of contemporary performance practices, it will encourage contributions on physical theatre, opera, dance, design and the increasingly blurred boundaries between the physical and the visual arts.

Performance Research is a substantial peer-reviewed journal making innovative connections between theatre, dance, music, time-based and live art. It explores the unsettled boundaries, rapidly changing practices and shifting definitions at play within the field.
Performance Research covers contemporary and historical performance and promotes a cross-disciplinary exchange of ideas, images and analysis. As such it will speak to a broad readership of academics, practitioners, critics and students interested in the exchange between performance practice and research. It includes material from renowned artists and scholars, as well as encouraging new voices.

PERFORMING CANADA: THE NATION ENACTED IN THE IMAGINED THEATRE
This is the first in a series of monographs, "CRITICAL PERFORMANCE/S
IN CANADA" published by our journal Textual Studies in Canada. "This book
offers a radical rethinking of the conceptual foundations of Canadian theatre
and, by extension, the Canadian nation which that theatre performs."
This full-length, well-illustrated work by Alan Filewod, begins with a (re)consideration of The Theatre of Neptune in New France (1606), in order to make the case that, "all of Canadian theatre, and the nation it stages, can be seen as a replaying of The Theatre of Neptune, a constant historical citation and recitation of the postcolonial crisis of authenticity and displacement." There are major discussions on patriotic and military mise en scene, the Stratford Festival and Vincent Massey, the Mummers Troupe's They Club Seals, Don't They?, and Garth Drabinsky and Show Boat...and many others!
Copies are available at $12 each. We believe this is going to be a seminal work in Canadian performance studies! To order, please contact our journal secretary, Denise Comtois, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
