Negotiating Cultures: Eugenio Barba and the Intercultural Debate (in English)
Ian Watson and colleagues: Negotiating Cultures: Eugenio Barba and the Intercultural Debate.
Manchester University Press, USA 2002. 275 pages, illus. PB. In English.
A collection of essays and interviews that examines the role of cultural fusion, negotiation and conflict in Eugenio Barba’s creative work, research, and theories about theatrical performance. Barba has been cutting edge of the contemporary preoccupation with what Homi Bhabja calls the borders between cultures. The book examines three of Barba’s major excursions along these borders: his research work at ISTA, his use of performance as a means of cultural exchange in his barter work, and his ongoing relationship with Latin America.
