About the Author

Erika Fischer-Lichte is Professor of Theatre Studies at the Freie Universitat Berlin and Chair of the Institute for Advanced Studies on "Interweaving Cultures in Performance" founded in 2008. Among her many publications are Global Ibsen. Performing Multiple Modernities (2010), The Transformative Power of Performance: A New Aesthetics (2008, German 2004), and Theatre, Sacrifice, Ritual. Exploring Forms of Political Theatre (2005). Ramona Mosse is Lecturer in Theatre Studies at the Freie Universitat Berlin, where she previously completed a fellowship at the International Research Center "Interweaving Performance Cultures." Minou Arjomand is Assistant Professor of English at Boston University. Her research focuses on the relationship between theatre and political trials in postwar Germany and the United States.


"Rarely do books with "introduction" in the title exhibit the depth of synthesis that this one does. Fischer-Lichte's book, as edited and translated by Minou Arjomand and Romona Mosse, is stimulating in its approach, conversational tone, and ease of access to interesting points of view...This well-researched, cogent study will be a fine addition to any theatre and performance studies collection. Summing up: Recommended." - CHOICE, November 2014
