Transfigured Stages: Major Practitioners & Theatre Aesthetics in Australia
Sydney’s Cleveland Street is a grimy arterial thoroughfare connecting the city’s two main universities, the intensely urban inner west and the wealthier eastern suburbs, known for their parks and beaches. With its heavy bus traffic, smoky pubs, and run-down terraces, it is, for many, a place on the way to somewhere else. It is perhaps telling that this liminal, vibrant, and occasionally dangerous location was, until recently, home to the Performance Space, a theatre “committed to new forms of art practice” and a key venue in Australia’s post-dramatic theatre movement – the focus of Margaret Hamilton’s Transfigured Stages: Major Practitioners and Theatre Aesthetics in Australia.
