Description

As part of the turn towards practice-as-research in theatre & performance studies, especially pronounced in British and other European universities but less common in the US, this session will feature a full performance of the French farce, Soeur Fessue, translated by our panelist Mario Longtin. The performance will be followed by a discussion of the various research agendas that are at work in such a project, and the way the performance event can become a scholarly battleground.
