Considering both making political performance and making performance politically, this collection explores engagements of political resistance, public practice and performance media, on various scales of production within structures of neoliberal and liberal government and power.

The essays in Performance, Politics and Activism offer myriad alternatives for encountering and analyzing radical performances that operate in resistance to inherited representational strategies and repressive political structures. Performance Studies scholars as well as theatre researchers will find many points of entry in this eclectic, expansive, and nuanced collection.
