About this book

Performing Ground explores camouflage as a performance practice, arguing that the act of blending into one's environment is central to the ways we negotiate our identities through space. The book offers a critically rich investigation of how the performative practice of camouflage renders the politics of space, power, and gender (in)visible.

Reviews

“Levin’s Performing Ground: Space, Camouflage and the Art of Blending In arguably makes the boldest moves toward reorienting the spatial analysis of performance. … Levin’s innovative use of the notions of camouflage to understand a variety of relationships between self and world will surely prove valuable to performance scholars working not just in relation to place, but also to gender, race, ecology, animal studies, scenography, photography, and visual art.” (Fiona Wilkie, Theatre Journal, Vol. 67, December, 2015)

'Performing Ground asks important questions about environmental responsibilities, global and local mobilities, boundaries, subjectivities, and issues of entitlement and dispossession, while remaining sensitive to conditions of gender, nationality, class, ethnicity and more. It argues persuasively that we are never solo, but always figures in a ground, embedded in dynamic and meaningful contexts, with responsibilities to others and to our environments. It is rich, admirably ambitious and fiercely compelling.' - Jen Harvie, Queen Mary University of London, UK
