    DescriptionThe essays in this collection offer a radical reappraisal of the avant-garde by placing it within a much broader global context. The book questions the very assumptions that underlie the generally accepted chronology and theory of the avant-garde, and offer a bold new performance-based theory that moves beyond Eurocentric presup-positions. In ten essays especially commissioned for this volume, leading scholars and critics including Marvin Carlson, Supito Chatterjee, John Conteh-Morgan, Harry J. Elam, Jr., Joachim Fiebach, David G. Goodman, Jean Graham-Jones, Hanna Higgins, and Adam Versenyi discuss avant-garde performances in Africa, the Middle East, Mexico, Argentina, India, and Japan.

    Review quote
    "Joins the growing field of critical and transnational theories on the arts... its grounding in live performance and its foregrounding of the performative human body presents a new theoretical paradigm that is pathbreaking." - Haiping Yan, University of California, Los Angeles"
