How Theatre Means
In this wide-ranging study, Ric Knowles demonstrates how the examination and practice of theatre is enhanced by an expanded semiotic approach.Moving from the history and theory of performance analysis to its practical application and paying particular attention to cross-cultural applications, he examines not what a particular piece of theatre means, but how meaning is produced in the process of creating, viewing and analysing theatre.
How Theatre Means presents contemporary case studies and explores intersections between a wide range of theories and methods. Clear and accessible, this book brings a key analytical methodology to life for students, practitioners and scholars.
'An excellent volume. Lucid, clear and accessible, it makes semiotic theory relevant to a new audience.' Patricia Ybarra, Associate Professor of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies, Brown University, USA"
