Alternative Theater in Taiwan: Feminist and Intercultural Approaches

by Iris Hsin-chun Tuan

Description

Taiwan’s historical and contemporary status as a nexus of Asian and Western cultural influences provides a rich canvas of research for the author who is uniquely trained in both Western critical and Taiwanese theatrical practices.

This highly original book furnishes a creative interpretation of alternative, contemporary Taiwanese Theater by applying Feminism, Interculturalism and other western theories to three intercultural performances of four avant-garde female directors from 1993-2004.

Although several important playwrights and directors have staged vital gender critiques of national and international practices, almost no critic has remarked upon them. 

The book’s intersection of a gender critique, and, in part, a postcolonial one, with Taiwanese stage practices is, therefore, a unique and significant contribution.
