dc.description.abstract This article discusses Polis, the latest performance in a long line of theatrical investigations by its director Mike Pearson, first with Welsh company Brith Gof, then with Pearson/Brookes, into the relationship between theatrical and political participation. Whereas earlier performances by Brith Gof articulated this relationship in reference to a concept of Welsh nationhood, the article argues that Polis marked a transition from a cultural understanding of nationhood to one based on a conception of citizenship, a transition effected by the recent process of devolution in Wales. At the same time as devolution has put the perennial quest for a ¿National Theatre¿ back on the agenda, Polis¿s participatory and deconstructivist format was devised as an alternative to current simplistic concepts of a ¿National Theatre¿ of representation. en
