Item description for Alternative Theater in Taiwan: Feminist and Intercultural Approaches by Iris Hsin-chun Tuan...
Taiwan's historical and contemporary status as a nexus of Asian and Western cultural influences provides a rich canvas of research for the author who is uniquely trained in both Western critical and Taiwanese theatrical practices.
This highly original book furnishes a creative interpretation of alternative, contemporary Taiwanese Theater by applying Feminism, Interculturalism and other western theories to three intercultural performances of four avant-garde female directors from 1993-2004.
Although several important playwrights and directors have staged vital gender critiques of national and international practices, almost no critic has remarked upon them.
The book's intersection of a gender critique, and, in part, a postcolonial one, with Taiwanese stage practices is, therefore, a unique and significant contribution.
