Evoking, Excavating and Analysing Landscape in the New Play Salvation Roses: Constructions of Identity, Culture and Meaning from a Dramatic Position
MetadataShow full item record
The doctoral research framing a creative work poses landscape as identity - something other than environmental or geographical setting -landscape is nominated as a geographical entity and a theatrical protagonist - it has identity and socio-cultural status. The research explores the creation, development and analysis of the play from the playwright's perspective and excavates historical, inherited, cultural, artistic and personal landscape contexts. The play attempts to contribute to post-colonial debates specifically to cultural discourse relating to land entitlement, custodial heritage and environmental sustainability from the point of view of, a dramatic play script. Utilising landscape and spatial theory and informed by contexts of post-colonial theory and cultural geography the theoretical framework applied deconstructs the work for the cultural meaning it offers.
