Description: "An invaluable resource to teachers of Latin American theater, with texts that provide an accurate panorama of Latin American theater." ---Adam Versenyi, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Stages of Conflictbrings together a vast array of dramatic texts, ambitiously tracing the intersection of theater and social and political life in the Americas over the past five centuries. Including eighteen works faithfully translated into English, the collection moves from a sixteenth century Mayan dance-drama to a 2003 production by the first published indigenous playwright in Mexico. Historical pieces from the sixteenth century to the present highlight the encounter between indigenous tradition and colonialism, while contributions from modern playwrights such as Virgilio Pinero, Jose Triana, and Denise Stolkos take on the tumultuous political and social upheavals of the past century. The editors have added comprehensive critical commentary that details the origins of each play, affording scholars and students of theater, performance studies, and Latin American studies the opportunity to view the history of a continent through its rich and diverse theatrical traditions. Diana Taylor is Director of The Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics (http://hemi.nyu.edu/eng/about/index.shtml) and Professor of Performance Studies and Spanish at New York University. Her books include the award-winning volumeThe Archive and the Repertoire: Performing Cultural Memory in the Americas. Sarah J. Townsend is a doctoral student at New York University.
