Compulsive Acts: Essays, Interviews, Reflections on the Works of Sky Gilbert edited by David Bateman
first published 2014, paperback
Compulsive Acts explores the films, plays, and personality of prolific playwright, novelist, film maker, and poet Sky Gilbert through the eyes of a handful of the people who have observed his work closely over the past two decades ? as audience members and arts workers. Actors, academics, performance artists, journalists, film makers, playwrights, poets and his partner of many years tackle his immense output with a queer eye for the intricacies of a unique and astute aesthetic vision ? a vision that has placed him securely within Canadian Theatre history as an iconic and consistently provocative dramatic force to be reckoned with.
