Promotional Information

"Sarah French's landmark book astutely frames twenty-first-century performance considered queer and feminist within an artistic category in its own right. It is very exciting to read about these theatrically accomplished but challenging innovative performances, and the complex ways in which they are meaningful. Just as these performances merit thorough investigation, this important book equally deserves the serious attention of a wide readership." (Peta Tait, La Trobe University, Australia) "Sarah French's book provides a compelling insight into ten years of vital, subversive, genre-defying Australian performance. She brings the anarchic energy of the performances alive and frames her persuasive analysis within appropriate intersectional feminist and postcolonial frameworks." (Sarah Gorman, University of Roehampton, UK)
