Q2Q: Queer Canadian Theatre and Performance (Playwrights Canada Press, 2018)
Edited by: Peter Dickinson, CE Gatchalian, Kathleen Oliver, Dalbir Singh
Q2Q: Queer Canadian Theatre and Performance seeks to understand why it is important not just to continue to tell queer stories on stage, but also to piece together the larger historical narrative of Canadian queer theatrical production and reception through academic research. Through these essays, artist reflections, and curatorial statements, the contributors generate theories and new ways of understanding how queer theatre and performance have contributed more broadly to the political and social development of LGBT2Q communities in Canada. This collection asks what a comparative analysis of contemporary queer performance practice in Canada can tell us about current appetites and potential future programming.
