Together with designers, composers and film makers, they plotted to destroy all existing theatres. But from their destruction emerged the most astonishing innovations of modernist theatre.

Rezensionen
'This is an invaluable collection of essays for those working in the area of modern and contemporary theatre.' - Professor Anthony Kubiak, University of Wisconsin, USA

'...an excellent text for a variety of courses, from those focused on modernism or modern drama to courses on theatre, art, and performance history' - Professor Tamsen Wolf, Princeton University, USA

'...an invaluable collection of essays on modernist European and American theatre by the top scholars in our field.' - Shawn-Marie Garrett, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Barnard College, Columbia University, USA

'...an excellent text for a variety of courses, from those focused on modernism or modern drama to courses on theatre, art, and performance history' - Professor Tamsen Wolf, Princeton University, USA

'...an invaluable collection of essays on modernist European and American theatre by the top scholars in our field.' - Shawn-Marie Garrett, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Barnard College, Columbia University, USA

'In Against Theatre, Ackerman and Puchner gather a distinguished group of scholars, who bring a sharp sense of modernist antitheatricality and its subversion to bear on the many genres, technologies, and literary instigations of modern performance. It's a book full of surprises and makes a welcome addition both to the literature and teaching of modernism and its orphaned stage.' - W.B. Worthen, J.L. Styan Collegiate Professor of Drama,

University of Michigan, USA

'...an overwhelmingly worthwhile project. The indeterminacy of anti-theatricality as a term, combined with an interdisciplinary focus, leads to a productive and engaging plurality in Against Theatre.' - Amy Simpson, Platform

'The finely sifted understanding of theatricality and its many nuanced opponents that emerges in this collection is a welcome, timely, and smart contribution to the debate.' - Theatre Survey
