Title: Applying Performance (Live Art, Socially Engaged Theatre and Affective Practice)
Author: Shaughnessy, Nicola
Price: $196.95

This book draws upon cognitive and affect theory to examine applications of contemporary performance practices in educational, social and community contexts. The writing is situated in the spaces between making and performance, exploring the processes of creating work defined variously as collaborative, participatory and socially engaged.


"Shaunghessy uses her expert authority to prove that performance matters, and that it matters in an enormous way." - Christine Boyko-Head, Mohawk College, Canada
