Paper delivered at Great Writing Conference, Imperial College, London, June 2011


How do we as writers resist the dominance of narratives dictated primarily by a market mentality and/or assumed homogeneity? In this paper, Nina Rapi, will explore how certain theatre practitioners, e.g. Howard Barker, Debbie Tucker Green, Sarah Kane, have resisted dominant narratives and created oppositional aesthetics, through stylistic/thematic choices and/or foregrounding cultural identity. N.R. will also refer to her own work.
