British South Asian Theatres: A Documented History (with accompanying DVD) (Paperback)

£25.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

The book includes a complimentary DVD providing an album of rare and previously unpublished items from private collections: historical documents, programmes, designs, photographs, and clips from recordings of rehearsals and productions.





British South Asian companies have formed one of the most significant features of theatre throughout the world in the last thirty years. Drawing on archive material and an extensive series of personal interviews, this exciting new book reverses the neglect of this vital element in the history of contemporary theatre - the vibrant presence of South Asians in theatre in Britain.





British South Asian Theatre provides a detailed picture of the activity of twelve remarkable theatre companies and one major arts centre, including Tara Arts, Tamasha, Kali, Rasa and Rifco, making use of a wide range of new interviews with the practitioners involved and extensive research in the archives of those companies, it also contains a survey of British based South Asian language theatres by Chandrika Patel.





This is a major contribution to the understanding of diasporic arts through one of the most impressive movements of its kind in the world.
