Hearing Difference: The Third Ear In Experimental, Deaf, And Multicultural Theater by Kanta Kochhar-Lindgren (Assistant Professor in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences Program at the University Of Washington) is a scholarly study of the connections between hearing and deafness in theater that pushes the boundaries of experimentation, as well as deaf and multicultural theater. Applying the model of the "third ear" to cross-sensory listening through sound, silence, and moving body performance, Hearing Difference deconstructs works of playwright Robert Wilson, the National Theatre of the Deaf, and Asian American director Ping Chong, as well as tracing the evolution of theatre of the third ear from the mid-1800s to the 1960s. An intensely scholarly close study of the systems that permeate theater, especially those that most strongly distinguish and transcend it from the audio-focused realm of the radio play, Hearing Difference is especially recommended for college library and Drama Department reference shelves.
