      -- The Journal of Performance Studies - T143 (Fall 1994) --
   TDR is the only journal that explores the diverse world of performance
   with an emphasis on the intercultural, interdisciplinary and experimental.
   It covers theatre, music, dance, entertainment, media, sports, politics,
   aesthetics of everyday life, games, plays and ritual.
   The journal is edited by Richard Schechner of the Department of
   Performance Studies, New York University, and is published quarterly
