Jean Genet: Performance and Politics is the first book to explore the broad political significance of Genet's performance practice by focusing on his radical experiments, polemical subjects and formal innovations in theatre, film and dance. Its new approach brings together the diverse aspects of Genet's work through essays by international scholars and interviews with such key theatre directors as Richard Schechner, Terry Hands, Cornerstone Theatre and Jean-Baptiste Sastre.
