 About the Book 

This interdisciplinary collection of fifteen new essays explores aspects of the performance of violence in contemporary Ireland. These essays investigate such wide-ranging issues as the diegetic and mimetic representation of violence on stage, ethical questions involved in performing violence, audience reception, the role of place and space, and social and political performances such as processions, parades, and commemorations. The book aims to contribute to the ongoing international debate on the performance of violence in contemporary societies.
