In Their Own Words
We are Noel, Anna and Teresa.
We are the Twenty-First Century Performance Readers.
We are a professor, an associate professor and a wannabe professor.
To accompany the launch of the long awaited The Twenty-First Century Performance Reader, published by Routledge, the editors Teresa Brayshaw, Anna Fenemore and Noel Witts present In their own words..., a 4-hour durational reading, in the Demarco Archive Polish Room, Summerhall.
The Twenty-First Century Performance Reader combines extracts from over 70 international practitioners, companies, collectives and makers from the fields of Dance, Theatre, Music, Live and Performance Art, and Activism, to form an essential sourcebook for students, researchers and practitioners. Bringing the book to life through a series of ‘performed moments’, the editors will read, converse, debate and dialogue with each other, with other artists present at the festival and with audience members.
