A Companion to Shakespeare and Performance provides a state-of-the-art engagement with the rapidly developing field of Shakespeare performance studies. Essays by major scholars, teachers, and professional theatre makers consider the many sites at which Shakespearean drama is performed: in print, in the classroom, in the theatre, in film, on television and video, in multimedia and digital forms, and as part of a globalized and intercultural performance economy. This companion stands at the cutting edge of the field: several essays introduce current terms and contemporary areas of enquiry in Shakespeare and performance; while others raise questions about the dynamic interplay between Shakespearean writing and the practices of contemporary performance and performance studies. Taken as a whole, the volume productively redraws the boundaries of Shakespeare performance studies.
