Abstract and Keywords

This chapter introduces the volume, discussing the ways that the Classics have never been tied by geographical nor linguistic boundaries, and in the case of the Americas long colonial histories have often imposed those boundaries arbitrarily. The volume will track networks across continents and oceans and uncover the ways in which the shared histories and practices in the performance arts in the Americas have routinely defied national boundaries. The introduction lays out the ways in which this volume seeks to define the complex contours of the reception of ancient drama in the Americas, and to articulate how these different engagements—at local, national, or trans-continental levels as well as across borders—have been both distinct from each other and from those of Europe and Asia.

Keywords: Tyrone Guthrie, nineteenth century, Latin America, postcolonial, Omni-Americans, Suzan-Lori Parks, gender, race
