CALL FOR PAPERS and PERFORMANCE REVIEWS
THEATRE.PERSPECTIVES.INTERNATIONAL (T.P.I) invites submission of papers
in the areas of theatre history, theory, criticism, and dramaturgy from
theatre scholars and practitioners worldwide. Subject matter for the
premiere issue of T.P.I will include all areas. The editors aim to
present a representative sampling of current thought on a wide variety of
topics, but will choose articles according to the quality of
research presented and the manner of presentation. Writers of articles
not used in this first issue may be asked for permission to hold their
paper for inclusion in later editions. It is intended to keep the scope
of T.P.I as open-ended as possible in order to include significant
articles on the entire range of theatrical praxis, i.e. acting/directing
methodology and design theory and criticism.
One of the most exciting features of T.P.I is expected to be the
publication of timely and meaningful reviews of productions seen around
the world. Again, the quality of content and presentation will be of
paramount importance, but it is intended that T.P.I eventually serve as
an online clearing house of production reviews. A database will be
established in conjunction with the THEATRELYNX BBS through which the
entire catalogue of criticism can be accessed. Those reviews that
represent the finest journalism and that address the most important new
productions will be published in succeeding issues of T.P.I Timeliness
is the key, as it is expected that readers will soon be able to get
critical information on productions worldwide on a nearly next-day basis.
