Abstract

Performative InterActions in African Theatre is a 3-book volume with contributions from a wide range of international scholars from across Africa, Europe, and America. Consequently, topics are discussed with in-depth critical vocabulary and focus appropriate for a publication written for international readership. The contributors’ backgrounds and global spread adequately reflect the international focus of the forthcoming publication. The general title for all three books is Performative InterActions in African Theatre, however each volume has a unique subtitle that work to better focus its content and differentiate it from the other two volumes. The collective title shared by the three books also helps to underscore their common theme. By choosing to address this theme, the volumes seek to examine how recent advances in global citizenship, technology, economics and trans/intercultural transactions and borrowings have impacted on theatre and performance in Africa. Contributions to the proposed volumes take their lead from on-going debate about significant challenges facing African theatre practice. However, these discussions are broadened to include the many advances and ingenious solutions adopted to tackle some of these challenges by drawing on different perspectives, including contacts, dealings and connections across cultures, disciplines and media.
