The most American thing in America : circuit Chautauqua as performance by Charlotte Canning( )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1904 and the Great Depression, Circuit Chautauquas toured the rural United States, reflecting and reinforcing its citizens' ideas, attitudes, and politics every summer through music, lectures, elocutionary readers, dramas, orations, and special programs for children." "Theatre historians have largely ignored Circuit Chautauquas since they did not meet the conventional conditions of theatrical performance: they were not urban; they produced no innovative performance techniques, stage material, design effects, or dramatic literature. In this illustrated book, Charlotte Canning establishes an analytical framework to reveal the Circuit Chautauquas as unique performances that both created and unified small-town America."--Jacket

On the performance front : US theatre and internationalism by Charlotte Canning( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On the Performance Front argues that US theatre in the twentieth century embraced the theories and practices of internationalism as a way to realize a better world and as part of the strategic reform of the theatre into a national expression. Live performance, theatre internationalists argued, could represent and reflect the nation like no other endeavour. On the Performance Front focuses on US theatre's international efforts without losing sight of either the ways these efforts mirrored those in other countries or the complex, often conflicting, relationship between internationalism and nationalism"
