Abstract/Summary

This special issue of Contemporary Theatre Review devoted to Staging Beckett aims to explore some of Beckett’s living legacies for the discipline of theatre and performance. This includes his impact on actors, designers or directors, on theatre cultures at national and local levels, and on theatre and cultural programming, to the generation of new approaches to theatre and interdisciplinary or intermedial performance and aesthetics, and on our interactions with the performance archive.The Staging Beckett project set out to explore these legacies on actors, directors and approaches to theatre and interdisciplinary or intermedial performance and aesthetics, on theatre cultures at national and local levels, on theatre and cultural programming, and on our interactions with the performance archive. This issue, though inevitably covering only a small selection of case studies mainly from British and Irish contexts, includes articles that cover several of these areas of investigation and suggests that Beckett’s work remains a vibrant presence and inspiration for scholars, practitioners and audiences of contemporary theatre and performance.
