Theatre and Translation by This timely new title in the Theatre And series explores theatre and translation's interconnectedness in representing the stories of others. Laera argues that the two practices share fundamental ethical questions which lie at the core of our multicultural societies and can teach us to practice the skills we need to empathise with perspectives and world views distant from our own. Through a wide array of examples from different languages and cultures, Laera makes the case that we should all become more familiar with how translation works and aware of its importance in today's world. Inspiring and wide-ranging, this book offers a concise but academically rigorous introduction to a complex topic. It is ideal for students of theatre, translation and adaptation.

An Introduction to Technical Theatre by This text is intended to be a learning resource for classes at both high school and college program levels. It is written in a modular format to help others, like myself, who regularly rearrange their syllabus around productions and space scheduling. Highlighted terms throughout the text indicate important theatrical terminology and are included in the glossary. As the text is modular, some terms may be highlighted in several sections upon first use therein. Boxed information under "There's more to know" or "Consider this" headers provides further information and ideas that relate to the text.

Theatre and History by This provocative book meets the supposedly 'live' practices of performance and the 'no-longer-live' historical past at their own dangerous crossroads. Focussing on the 'and' of the title, it addresses the tangled relations between the terms, practices, ideas, and aims embedded in these compatriot - but often oppositional - arts and acts of time.
