Description
 

Queer Notions is a seminal anthology of new plays and performance documentation from Ireland.


Foreword by Frank McGuinness


This collection is a record of some of the most important performative ideas and embodied interventions that have shaped queer culture and theatre and performance practice in Ireland
in recent times, principally in the years following the decriminalization of homosexuality in
1993, up to and including the present. The anthology includes plays, experimental performance documentation, and a visual essay that reveal the impassioned creativity that illuminates and invigorates the margins of culture.

Fintan Walsh s Queer Notions: New Plays and Perfor November 22, 2011
Reviewer: Charlotte McIvor Theatre Survey from Republic of Ireland  
Fintan Walsh s Queer Notions: New Plays and Performances from Ireland serves as a critical intervention and unique resource for researchers and artists alike [...]Walsh s Queer Notions creates space in Irish archives for queer stories and lives  and provides an important text for queer theatre and performance studies at large [...] By centralizing  queer  Irish histories embodied and transmitted through performance  Walsh s book expands the canon of Irish dramatic literature and makes a powerful and urgent case for the necessary analysis of queer transnational flows vis   vis performance historie

Queer Notions then is more than just an antholog February 3, 2011
Reviewer: Patrick Lonergan teaches at NUI Galway. Irish Thea from Republic of Ireland  
Queer Notions  then  is more than just an anthology. It is an archive of ten years  worth of performances  a collection of work that tells us something about a specific time and place  but which also has bigger and broader resonances. In its variety   its internal contradictions  its discordances  its contrasts   it challenges us to think and re think what we know: about sexuality  about our theatre  about Ireland itself. It s an urgent and important book: inspiring as it is challenging  informative as it surprising   and one that deserves the widest possible audience

This is a very exciting collection which will make July 14, 2010
Reviewer: Ivana Bacik Senator and Reid Professor of Law Tr from Republic of Ireland  
This is a very exciting collection which will make a vital contribution to literature on Irish theatre and drama studies. It will also greatly help in documenting the rich  challenging and vibrant nature of LGBTQ culture in Ireland. Perhaps most importantly  it should provoke and entertain a wide audience
