“This is a remarkable achievement showing how performance can be a platform for new ways of writing and an area of literary invention and achievement.  Challenging, rewarding, confronting but essential reading.  Make sure you buy and read Performing the Unnameable.”    

                                                                        Bill Simon, Metaphor


“RealTime 28 celebrates a major event in arts publishing: the first collection of Australian performance texts…Performing the Unnameable  pays homage to some 2 decades of significant and innovative engagements between performers and the idea of theatre that have yielded an open-ended form often simply called performance.  These works radically juxtapose a range of media, they evolve collaboratively, incorporate audiences into performances and…test the limits of the word…a rich repository of the ways that performance texts work”

Keith Gallasch, Editorial, RealTime


“A first in Australian publishing history and a priceless resource.”

Edward Scheer, Heat
