It’s a place where feasts never end, games of croquet have devastating consequences, and teenagers are punished for growing up. For a select group of masters, it’s a decadent paradise where time stands still. But for those who serve them, it’s a slow torture where their lives can be ended in a blink.

Traveling between their world and ours, they hunt for the one person who can grant them freedom. Along the way, they encounter a mysterious traveler who trades in favors and never forgets debts, a crossroads at the center of the universe, our own world on the brink of war, and a traveling troupe of actors with the ability to unlock the fabric of reality. Endlessly inventive, The Memory Theater takes us to a wondrous place where destiny has yet to be written, life is a performance, and magic can erupt at any moment.

To see through the eyes of essayist and dramaturge Jan Kott is to gain in knowledge not just of the theater but also of human culture. Since his Shakespeare Our Contemporary appeared in English in 1964, Kott's work has altered--and strengthened--the way critics and the public approach the theater as a whole. The Memory of the Body highlights a number of dramatic personalities and personages: authors and directors Witkiewicz, Brecht, Kantor, Grotoswki, Ingmar Bergman, Wedekind; Tilly Newes on the stage in turn-of-the-century Vienna; the all-too-mortal, two-thirds divine Gilgamesh; and a shaman in rural Korea. In a style flecked with passion, poignancy, and wit, Kott moves beyond a mere discussion of theater to speak of eroticism, painting, love, and death.

Who owns the memory? In The Memory Marketplace, Emilie Pine explores how memory is performed both in Ireland and abroad by considering the significant body of contemporary Irish theatre that contends with its own culture and history.

What happens when cultural memory becomes a commodity? Who owns the memory? In The Memory Marketplace, Emilie Pine explores how memory is performed both in Ireland and abroad by considering the significant body of contemporary Irish theatre that contends with its own culture and history. Analyzing examples from this realm of theatre, Pine focuses on the idea of witnesses, both as performers on stage and as members of the audience. Whose memories are observed in these transactions, and how and why do performances prioritize some memories over others? What does it mean to create, rehearse, perform, and purchase the theatricalization of memory? The Memory Marketplace shows this transaction to be particularly fraught in the theatricalization of traumatic moments of cultural upheaval, such as the child sexual abuse scandal in Ireland. In these performances, the role of empathy becomes key within the marketplace dynamic, and Pine argues that this empathy shapes the kinds of witnesses created. The complexities and nuances of this exchange--subject and witness, spectator and performer, consumer and commodified--provide a deeper understanding of the crucial role theatre plays in shaping public understanding of trauma, memory, and history.

Why did medieval dramatists weave so many scenes of torture into their plays? Exploring the cultural connections among rhetoric, law, drama, literary creation, and violence, Jody Enders addresses an issue that has long troubled students of the Middle Ages. Theories of rhetoric and law of the time reveal, she points out, that the ideology of torture was a widely accepted means for exploiting such essential elements of the stage and stagecraft as dramatic verisimilitude, pity, fear, and catharsis to fabricate truth. Analyzing the consequences of torture for the history of aesthetics in general and of drama in particular, Enders shows that if the violence embedded in the history of rhetoric is acknowledged, we are better able to understand not only the enduring theater of cruelty identified by theorists from Isidore of Seville to Antonin Artaud, but also the continuing modern devotion to the spectacle of pain. --Ann Blake "Theatre Journal"

Starting with a premise that memory holds a privileged place in contemporary experience, Theory for Theatre Studies: Memory explores the intersections between contemporary theatre and performance, the interdisciplinary field of memory studies, and current preoccupations with the politics of memory across the globe. After offering a fresh critical snapshot of the major theoretical foundations for the study of memory today, the book presents vivid theatrical examples from across the globe and compellingly illustrates the centrality of memory for the theatre as well as the vital role of theatre in making political claims and interventions and transmitting individual and collective memories. Works considered include Tadeusz Kantor's Wielopole, Wielopole, Lola Arias' Minefield, Katie Mitchell's The Forbidden Zone, Brokentalkers's The Blue Boy, and André Amálio's Liberation. Part of the Theory for Theatre Studies series which introduces core theoretical concepts that underpin the discipline, Memory provides a balance of essential background information and original thinking, and is grounded in case studies to illuminate and equip readers. Volumes follow a consistent three-part structure: an overview of how the term has been understood within the discipline; current trends illustrated by substantive case studies; and emergent trends and interdisciplinary connections. Volumes are supported by further online resources including illustrative material, questions and exercises.

To date, important work on memory has been done across many disciplines, but less in the field of theatre studies. This study attempts to redress this bias, and to expand the field by offering new texts and contexts for study, and new methods to approach them. My thesis examines the many ways in which memory functions within the texts and performances of Harold Pinter, Tadeusz Kantor, and Heiner Muller, as well as the ways in which their works reflect and respond to various aspects of contemporary memory discourse. Their memory-theatres explore the relation between individual and collective memory, between real and imaginary, event and fantasy, history and myth. In representing the complex and heterogeneous ways in which memories are constructed, their works reach out toward the individual and collective sites of memory, history, and loss, while at the same time explicitly negotiating meaning with their audiences. I argue that their memory-theatres are symbolic sites not only of memory but of intervention, showing how the transmission of memories includes negation, contestation, exclusion, repression and their return in disfigured ways. Often positioned within a specific memory discourse in which they intervene, these memory-theatres draw their effectiveness from the irreparable wounds of trauma, to which they appeal. Embracing not only the past, but also the future, they open spaces for a cultural convalescence to be achieved through the performance of mourning. While they stand for a network of concerns, a range of responses to the complex overlapping between the present and the past, the individual and the collective, the psychic and the social, and the aesthetic and the political, these three representatives of a memory-theatre show that how we think about the culture of the past cannot be separated from how we act in the present.

This book is a study of the plays, performances and writings of Christina Reid. It explores Reid’s work through her own words, both in interviews and writings; through theoretical engagements in other disciplines, such as psychology and geography; and through responses to her plays in production. It is a compilation of sorts, gathering together interviews, critical material, unpublished works and theatrical reviews to reflect the breadth and depth of Reid’s contribution to the theatrical culture of Northern Ireland, during the Troubles and beyond.
