Focusing specifically on solo making and performing, this unique and exciting text allows the experts to speak for themselves. In interviews with Misri Dey, six recognised solo performers working across a range of performance genres – including theatre, dance, live and performance art, site-specific performance, music video and film – provide insightful and practical strategies for creative making and performing processes. Interviewees include Bryony Kimmings, Tim Etchells, Bobby Baker, Mike Pearson, Wendy Houstoun and Nigel Charnock.

Engaging and accessible, this is an invaluable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Theatre, Performance and Acting, scholars, lecturers and performance practitioners. It will also appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students of Women's Studies, Creative Writing and the Visual Arts.
