Postdramatic Tragedies

Emma Cole

Classical Presences

  • Documents both watershed and little-known productions, and features artists including Martin Crimp, Jan Fabre, Sarah Kane, and The Wooster Group
  • Repositions the history of postdramatic theatre not as a teleological process but as the result of a series of international, unconnected experiments
  • Reveals the significance of the classics to the development of the postdramatic
  • Synthesizes materials from classics, theatre and performance studies, and translation and adaptation studies as part of a new, interdisciplinary methodology for the study of tragedy in modernity
