Bahasa Perlawanan dan Politik Tubuh dalam Teori Drama Pasca-Kolonial Helen Gilbert dan Joanne Tompkins

Herpin Nopiandi Khurosan, Riyana Rizki Yuliatin


This paper is a review and preparation of concepts, ideas and theoris of post-colonial drama in Helen Gilbert andTompkins’s sense. I use “Post-Colonial Drama: Theory, Practice, Politics†as a main source of their ideas about post-colonial Drama. I limited this paper in theories of canonical counter-discourse, the language of resistance, and body politics in post-colonial context. The result of this reconstruction to their theories is developed to become theoretical and methodological framework which can be used to analyse post-colonial drama in later researches.
