A Brief Introduction to the Field of Performance and Ecology

As I frequently get asked to recommend introductory readings on performance and ecology, I thought I would share this paper, which outlines some of the key texts in the field. This paper introduces the  development of the field within the academy stemming from performance studies, theatre studies and ecocriticism. It outlines some of key concepts, tensions and approaches within the field. I also consider its development to its current context and identify some the key texts at the intersection of performance and ecology. Paper available to download here.
