Throughout history theatre and performance have been utilized to subvert authority and enable activities that seek to remain undetected. Within scholarship the concepts of ‘performing ground’, ‘not-not Identities’ and ‘dark play’  represent just a few of the many ideas and areas of investigation that branch out to the world of undercover work. This issue of Performance Research looks to uncover instances of performance that would otherwise remain undercover, which may also be identified as ‘covert operations’, ‘clandestine theatres’ and ‘deceptive practice’.
