Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology of essays focuses on the renewed interest in the interrelationships between myth, religion and theatre. Each chapter examines different interactions between the Holy Scriptures not only of Islam, Christianity and Judaism, but also of other sacred traditions.

Contents include:
-- Re-enactment/celebration in ritual and theatre
-- Sacred icons and theatricality
-- Theatre as Holy Space/the divine on stage
-- Hieratic gesture in theatre
-- Interculturality and Holiness in theatre
-- Liturgical rites in the theatre
-- Religious theatre and the audience

Book News Annotation:

Nineteen essays discuss the interrelationships between theatrical performance and religious experience—with primarily a Judeo- Christian emphasis, though the editor points out the potential for exploration in connection with all the world religions. Among the topics discussed: holy space and representational place in the tenth- century, Norwegian rock art as the first sources of theater in Europe, the sacramental aesthetic in the plays of Dorothy L. Sayers, religious implications of drama from the Holocaust, and holy scriptures and subversive theater in Poland. Levy is a theater director and author with profound enthusiasm for his topic. Distributed by ISBS.
