Performing Identities on the Stages of Quebec explores the poetics and politics of Québécois identity. Considering the stage as a metaphor of virtual communities and performance as a privileged moment of collective identity rituals, this study centers on three productions from the national, local, and international stages: the Saint Jean or national holiday; Salut vieille branche! a street-theatre parody on genealogical roots; Tectonic Plates, a bicontinental work in progress. Through multiple voices and theatrical framings, these performances from Quebec address the problem of minority nationalism at the close of the twentieth century.
