Theatre is a branch of the performing arts. Any performance may be considered theatre; however, as a performing art, theatre focuses almost exclusively on live performers enacting a self-contained drama before an audience.

A performance qualifies as dramatic by creating a representational illusion.Work with Suspect Culture, a collection of two experimental performance texts, 'Static: a story of love, loss and compilation tapes' (A Suspect Culture and Graeae Theatre Company, ) and 'Theatremorphosis' (Suspect Culture, ), with supporting contextual material and a co-edited book 'The Suspect Culture Book' (Oberon,ISBN ).'The need for this book, for both scholars and students of early modern Europe, cannot be overstated.

For many years research has productively aspired to global inclusivity in its understanding of the period’s theater and culture. The distinguished contributors to this book rise to the challenge brilliantly as they open the way for future work.
