The book series AGENT New Theses in Performance Research aims to provide a public forum for the dissemination of excellent research in the field of Theatre and Performance Studies. It encourages outstanding young researchers to contribute their Master and PhD dissertations focussing on topics related to dramaturgy, dance, theatre and performance in global and historical contexts, as well as music theatre, video art, installation art, activist performances and digital theatre. These works are written in English or Dutch and are informed by philosophical approaches to aesthetics and ethics, by sociological and political concepts as well as critical postcolonial, queer and gender theories. Access to such research texts brings a knowledge of historiographical and theoretical foundations to the public. AGENT. New Thesis in Performance Research is a co-operation between Belgium and The Netherlands – two countries internationally known for their innovative and radical forms of experimental theatre. The editors of this series, Prof. Dr. Kati Röttger (chair of the Institute of Theatre Studies at the University of Amsterdam) and Prof. Dr. Bram van Oostveldt (Professor for Performance Studies at the University of Gent) champion international work on theatre and performance and promote its mediation in English, Dutch and German languages.
