Sarah French's Staging Queer Feminisms explores the intersection of queer and feminist performance work in Australian Theatre between 2005 and 2015. Mapping the work of seven independent performance artists and performance companies, French critically analyses how their creative works interrogate sexual, racial and gendered identity constructs. Through detailed illustrations of the various performances combined with comprehensive scholarly critique, French demonstrates how the creative works expose oppressive normative ideologies through their subversive use of parody, irony and self-reflexive modes of performance.
