It explores the link between a western theatre culture which, says Kershaw, is largely past its sell-by-date and the blossoming of postmodern performance, much of which has a genuinely radical edge.

In staying determinedly poised between Brecht and Baudrillard, modernity and postmodernism, Baz Kershaw identifies crucial resources for the revitalization of the radical across a wide spectrum of cultural practices. He asks, what next, once political theatre is all but dead, smothered by the promiscuity of the political in postmodern culture?

This book should be of interest to anyone searching for a critical catalyst for new ways of viewing and doing cultural politics.
