Communities and Commodities

image of Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

This article addresses the commodification of Waiting for Godot in community intervention theatre, with particular focus on Paul Chan’s 2007 production Waiting for Godot in New Orleans. It examines three forms of community that emerge in response to the project: artistic, social and local. By considering the ways in which the New Orleans Godot deploys these notions of community, it develops an argument for interpretive “thickness” in performing interventionist Godots, which, in turn, opens up new avenues for the debate between site-specific and traditional performances.
