How can we rethink the importance of voice in performance? How can we understand voice simultaneously as music and text, as sound and body, or as both personal and political?

This book explores voice across genres, media and cultures, inviting the reader to reassess established ways of analysing, enjoying and listening to voice. Using a wide range of case studies integrated with critical and philosophical frameworks, it makes audible the multiple ways in which voice contributes to how we perform identities. From opera and musical theatre to live art and immersive audio walks, Konstantinos Thomaidis presents voice as plural, elusive and ripe for reinvention.

​I found ... Theatre & Voice extraordinarily rich and clear. I learnt many things I did not know and I believe that any scholar who decides to write about voice, from any disciplinary perspective, should read it carefully, especially in light of the call for an examination of voice that is attuned to contemporary, participatory, cross-media practices. (Adriana Cavarero, Journal of Interdisciplinary Voice Studies, 3.1, 2018)
