n African Performance Review - Staging Black Feminisms : Identity, Politics, Performance, Lynette Goddard : book review

Volume 2, Issue 2_3
  • ISSN : 1753-5964


Lynette Goddard's is both audacious and germane in its critical appraisal of the challenges and fortunes of black British women dramatists and performers. It sets out to confront and, perhaps, alter long held notions of black women's work as inherently feminist. The book draws heavily upon Goddard's extensive experience as a black woman / feminist stage manager, technician and lighting designer with theatre companies such a Black Mime Theatre, Black Theatre Co-operative (now NITRO) and the Tricycle Theatre, and recently as an academic, to unite issues of identity, politics and performance aesthetic in discussions about contemporary black feminist theatre.
