Negotiating coloured identity through encounters with performance
MetadataShow full item record
In this study the theatre as staged performance and as text was used as exploratory and discursive tools to investigate the negotiation of identities. The aim was to explore this theme by examining the responses to four popular Coloured identity-related staged performances; Marc Lottering's "Crash" and "From the Cape Flats with Love", as well as Petersen, Isaacs and Reisenhoffer's "Joe Barber" and "Suip". These works, both as performance and as text, was used to investigate the way stereotypical representations of Coloured identities are played with, subverted or negotiated in performance.
