Exploring theatre works created for, by, and with refugees, this hybrid collection of essays combines newly commissioned scholarly work with examples of writing by refugees themselves. These varied contributions illuminate performances that range from theatre in Thai refugee camps to site-specific works staged in a run-down immigrant community in the United Kingdom. An exciting addition to the growing field of applied theatre, Refugee Performance provides inspiring insight into the resilience and creativity of artists responding to one of the most critical issues of our time.
