Women Theatre and Performance MUP

  • Explores the connections between popular entertainment and experimental performance between 1880 and 1910
  • Focuses on seven women who used the fin-de-siècle's popular stage as a space to develop their experimental performance practices: acts that won them international fame and critical acclaim
  • Uses accounts, reviews, autobiographical writings, interviews and other cultural products to illustrate how it is clear that individual female celebrities understood their work as creative, professional and original performance practice
