Alternative Globalizations (CTR 157 Winter 2014)
Edited by Barry Freeman and Catherine Graham

This issue will examine ways in which Canadian theatre companies and performers are working to create an alternative sense of what globalization could mean. The issue will look especially at how Canadian artists are connecting to those in other countries, creating horizontal networks of performance that function outside the logic of market-based consumption to make the flows of globalization visible. It aims to re-envision what it might mean to participate as a citizen, rather than simply as a consumer, in an increasingly globalized flow of performances. Topics to be discussed include anti-globalization protest plays, Debajehmujig Theatre’s “Global Savages” project, Théâtre Parminou’s collaboration with French and Belgian theatre companies to produce a series of plays on global finance, Théâtre des Petites Lanternes’ international participatory Théâtre Citoyen projects, the role of Canadian performers in supporting transvestite performance in Nicaragua, and the work of Kitchener’s MT Space Theatre on global transcultural communication.
