Publisher's description: Marking the 20th anniversary of Belgium's Kunstenfestivaldesarts -- a major arts festival featuring international creative talent -- this ambitious book examines a wide range of critical perspectives on the two decades of performing arts. The authors look closely at performing arts pieces from around the world to see what critiques and insights they reveal about society. Among the topics that these works address are the dialogue between history and memory, the development of a sense of community, the interplay between fiction and reality, and the fine line between a spectator and a witness. In addition to featuring images of the performances, the book includes texts by the artists themselves, sketches, photos, and writings by prominent figures in the fields of philosophy and sociology. In assembling these materials, The Time We Share attempts to build a global overview of the relationship between performing arts and society, and determine how different performances helped shape international thought surrounding specific issues and ideas.
