Through the (In)visible Witness in "Through the Wire"
Wake, Caroline
Research in Drama Education, v13 n2 p187-192 Jun 2008
This essay analyses "Through the Wire", an Australian verbatim play by and about asylum seekers, in order to investigate both the figure of the performing witness and the function of performing witness in and through theatre. It suggests that while the characters, actors and spectators involved in the play are all "performing witness(es)", how they carry out their task differs. (Contains 1 note.)
