(p.1) Introduction
Witness Onstage

Molly Flynn

Manchester University Press

The Introduction to Witness onstage maps the structure of the book and sets out key concepts used in its analysis of the Russian documentary theatre repertoire. It provides an overview of scholarship on documentary theatre as it has developed internationally before situating the form within its specifically contemporary Russian context. This introduction also describes how the author’s work as a performer, producer, and translator of Russian documentary theatre has informed her approach to research. Lastly, the introduction to Witness onstage outlines how, through a performative practice of anamnesis, Russia’s documentary theatre artists seek to engage audiences in an active process of transformation.
