NEW BOOK: 'Rimini Protokoll Close-Up: Lektüren'

06 May, 2015

Dear IFTR colleagues,

please find below the details of a new book that should be of interest to scholars and students of contemporary (German) theatre and documentary performance:

Johannes Birgfeld, Ulrike Garde & Meg Mumford (eds), Rimini Protokoll Close-Up: Lektüren (Hannover, Wehrhahn, 2015). [ISBN 978 3 86525 454 2]



The book provides close-up readings of productions and formats created by Rimini Protokoll, one of the most significant innovators within both the German and international theatre scene. Through combining commentaries from theatre makers and researchers based across Europe and Australia, contributions in German and English, and essay, interview and discussion formats, this book presents a wealth of perspectives on Rimini Protokoll’s important engagement with theatre and society. By bringing fresh approaches to some of the most influential theatre of the last decade, it also invites new perspectives on contemporary theatre.

For those readers who do not speak German, you may be interested to know that the Introduction, 5 chapters, and 1 panel discussion  are in English, and that each chapter is preceded by an English-language abstract. 

Copies of the book can be ordered via the following site:
When you (or your librarian) are in this site, to commence an order just click on 'in den Warenkorb' i.e. next to the shopping trolley icon. 

Kind regards,
