A new publication and a new direction in cross-disciplinary research

Bloomsbury Influences: Papers from the Bloomsbury Adaptations Conference, Bath Spa University, 5-6 May 2011
Professor Shelley Saguaro and Lucy Tyler have contributed to this new collection of essays, edited by E. H Wright. In this collaborative essay, entitled ‘”Nature Once More Had Taken Her Part”: Recuperating Anon, the Common Voice and the Uncovered Theatre’, ‘the pageant performed by the villagers in Woolf’s Between the Acts is linked to “ecoperformance”, a theoretical approach which explores the pressures places on al fresco theatre by the natural world. As well as how and why it has become an important part of British culture. Woolf, according to Saguaro and Tyler, “offers a compelling example of outdoor theatre and its practitioners’ methodologies, which can be compared (and are useful) to a contemporary practice of the art form”.’ (E.H Wright, Introduction).
