Abstract

Is "theatre semiology" now history? Melrose's book argues that theatre practice continues to make use of both a complex web of "spontaneous semiologies" (Bourdieu), and the "arts de faire" (or arts of making do) outlined by Michel de Certeau. In drawing on both the habitus and the "practices of everyday life", Melrose attempts to trace between established theoretical fields and fields of practice, a discursive path which might permit a renewed semiotic approach to dramatic theatre's different economics.
