This book explores the use of creative practices, in particular, theatre, as a platform for enabling new research methodologies and spaces in which to practice politics. It offers insights into the use of theatre as a medium to disseminate research to the wider public and extend the terrain of political debate in productive ways. The book explores debates within transnational feminism and transnational justice to offer new perspectives on affect and performance. It also engages with theory on the liveliness of material objects as actors in networks of knowledge production. In particular, the book provides an insight into the travels of a performance script through national and transnational space, as an opportunity to consider a public debate across nations that have intertwined histories and spatialities on the issues of care and need.
