Katie Mitchell


I'm in conversation with Kim Solga in this new book:

Fowler, Benjamin, ed. The Theatre of Katie Mitchell. Abingdon: Routledge, 2018. 

We're discussing Katie Mitchell's relation to Naturalism and feminism and the politics of that encounter. It's based on the video conversation we had, available of Digital Theatre Plus, and makes it more widely available (not everyone has access to Digital Theatre).

The format is that I talk first about her relationship to historical Naturalism; then Kim talks about the developing nature of Mitchell's feminism and then we discuss aspects of her work together and cover some interesting points, I think. The transcript is slightly emended, to add references and correct some egregious stylistic howlers, but it retains the feel of a conversation, making it easily readable.

It's the first of a series of publications based on the 4x45 video series (4 x 45' interviews and talks) and it's great to be part of the opening of that series. Our section is:

Rebellato, Dan, and Kim Solga. 'Katie Mitchell and the Politics of Naturalist Theatre.' The Theatre of Katie Mitchell. Ed. Fowler, Benjamin. 4x45. Abingdon: Routledge, 2018. 39-71. Print.
