First Edition

Peter Boenisch

Published by Manchester University Press

Theatre Theory Practice Performance MUP

  • Explores the cultural history of Regie, as European theatre directors become a familiar presence on international stages and a new generation of theatre makers absorbs their impulses
  • Provides comprehensive conceptual mapping of the distinctly Continental European tradition of staging playtexts, from a European perspective
  • Helps understanding of the emergence of Regie and its central aspects, providing a systematic overview of the thinking of Regie and introducing core ideas
  • Offers a new and distinct critical approach to Regie and contemporary theatre at large, leaving behind the stifling debates of playwrights' vs directors' theatre and text vs. performance
