By Jen Harvie. Performance Interventions series. Basingstoke, UK: Palgrave Macmillan, ; pp. Fair Play is a bold and confident book, its argument incisive yet hopeful. The rich range of examples that the chapters explore—organized as interrogations of labor, entrepreneurialism, location, and economics—are drawn chiefly from London, but her concerns about the incursions of neoliberal capitalism speak to us all. The first chapter explores participatory art and performance in the context of the ubiquitous deregulation of labor in global markets.

Part of the Performance Interventions book series PIPI Abstract I was inspired to write this book in response to the recent proliferation of performance and art practices that engage audiences socially — by inviting those audiences to participate, act, work and create together; observe one another; or simply be together.
This trend has been growing exponentially since the s in, for example, much public art, immersive theatre, one-to-one theatre, and relational and delegated art. In performance and theatre, practices of immersing audiences within theatrical worlds and inviting them to participate there are no longer principally confined to their usual manifestations in applied performance contexts such as theatre-in-education.
In sculpture and art installation, audiences are increasingly welcomed to interact with the works at least spatially, and sometimes through touch or more vigorous participation. The enormity and spread of this trend raises questions about why these practices are proliferating, what they say about contemporary culture, what they can actually do for audiences, and what they can offer contemporary social relations.
