Abstract (English)

An anthology made in conjunction with Vancouver’s performance art festival Live at the End of the Century (1999), organized by G. Alteen and B. Canyon. In his introductory text Canyon suggests the 13 essays in this book highlight different aspects of more than 35 years of performance activity in Vancouver. A wide range of issues are considered – aesthetics, politics, gender, sexuality, subjectivity and the body – in relation to subjects such as: the relationship between theatricality and performance; performance art presented through broadcast and telecommunications media; the role of Vancouver’s artist-run-centres; spiritual and philosophical aspects of performance by First Nations; lesbian identity; queer culture; and the influence of drag. Includes a detailed chronology of Vancouver performance since 1965. Biographical notes. 55 bibl. ref.
