Год издания: 2004Количество страниц: 288
Book DescriptionAn intriguing discussion of the levels of "filtering" that any Shakespeare performance in China undergoes, and a close examination of how these "filters" reflect the continually changing political, social and cultural practices. The studytraces the history of Shakespeare performance in China over the past hundred years, focussing in detail on eleven productions in mainstream, operatic and experimental forms in the post-Mao era. The author?s unusually intimate knowledge of her subject, and her personal involvement in three of the productions she discusses, makes this the most up-to-date research available on staging Shakespeare in China.
