The Efficacy/Effeminacy Braid: Unpicking the Performance Studies/Theatre Studies Dichotomy.
Bottoms, Stephen J.
Theatre Topics, v13 n2 p173-87 Sep 2003
Notes that in the popular imagination, theatre is still linked integrally and stereotypically with homosexuality. Discusses various critical debates of the 1960s about the linguistic and conceptual divorce of theatre and theatricality from performance and performativity. Concludes that if Theatre Studies has an enemy at all, it is in its own tendency to undervalue itself. (PM)
