About this product
- DescriptionNadia Anwar analyzes select post-independence Nigerian dramas through the conceptual framework of metatheater, a strategy that breaks dramatic illusion to foreground the process of play making. Anwar argues that distancing, as a function of metatheater, fosters a balanced theatrical environment by allowing the emotive and cognitive aspects of reception to dominate the theatergoing experience. She draws on Bertolt Brecht, Thomas J. Scheff, and other theoreticians to critique plays by Wole Soyinka, Ola Rotimi, Femi Osofisan, Esiaba Irobi, and Stella 'Dia Oyedepo.
- Author BiographyNadia Anwar is currently assistant professor at the University of Management and Technology, Lahore. Her primary interests include postcolonial and postmodern literatures in general and African drama and theater in particular.
