Article excerpt

I first of all wish to thank Mieke Bal and Murat Aydemir, under whose guidance the research for this book first took shape at the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis of the University of Amsterdam. I'm grateful to Loma Hardwick and Irene de Jong for their useful feedback on my manuscript and to Mark Fleishman and Yael Färber for making the scripts of their plays available to me. My warm thanks to all the friends and colleagues who have supported me throughout the writing process. A special word of gratitude to my dear friends Paulina Aroch Fugellie, who, more than any of the books I've read, opened my eyes to a wider world, and Falke Pisano, who was always there for long-distance talks and who designed the cover image for this book. Finally, I thank my family. My brothers Steven and Stijn, whom I'm glad to have by my side. My father, for always reminding me that there are different sides to every story, for challenging me in heated discussions, for smiling at my idealism, for his thirst for knowledge. My mother, for always reassuring and never failing me, for seeing the forest through the trees, for her wisdom and common sense. Bedankt.
