New Theatre Quarterly 54: Volume 14, Part 2
New Theatre Quarterly provides a lively international forum where theatrical scholarship and practice can meet, and where prevailing dramatic assumptions can be subjected to vigorous critical questioning. It shows that theatre history has a contemporary relevance, that theatre studies need a methodology, and that theatre criticism needs a language. The journal publishes news, analysis and debate within the field of theatre studies. Topics covered in NTQ 54 include: Cross-Media Fertilization and Historicity; Little Acts of Faith: Katie Mitchell's The Mysteries; Body Language: the Documentation of Women's Bodies in Theatre; Playing (with) Shakespeare: Bryony Lavery's Ophelia and Jane Prendergast's I, Hamlet; High-Engender'd Battles: Power in Queen Lear; Complex Performance: Science and Myth in Contemporary Drama; Folk Theatre in Brazil.
