The Rehearsal (a book)

The Rehearsal – Pigeon Theatre’s trilogy of performance works on playing dead is a newly published book, edited by Anna Fenemore.

A trilogy of site-specific performance texts, The Rehearsal raises questions about the interplay in contemporary theatre between the processes of rehearsal and the theatrical metaphors that shape our everyday dealings with trauma, including death.

Accompanied by critical essays from Anna Fenemore, Allan Kellehear, Carol Komaromy and Alan Fair in the areas of Performance Studies, Sociology, Death Studies, Health and Social Care, and Psychoanalysis and Cultural Theory, these collaboratively written performance texts explore the double meaning of ‘playing dead’.

The Rehearsal (a book) is published by Intellect as a new installment in their acclaimed Playtext series.
