British-Australian cultural exchange: live performance 1880-1960

Anglo-Australian cultural relations in the late 19th and early 20th century have often been discussed in terms of cultural imperialism. Yet there is a need to recognise the complexity of this interaction and to move towards a more sophisticated model for analysis. The project seeks to shift the way Anglo-Australian cultural exchange c.1880-1960 is mapped and evaluated. It also seeks to establish how Australian commercial theatre, music hall and variety interacted strongly and diversely with British culture and to assess the significance of the many and varied encounters between British performers and the Australian public.
