Reviews

“This collection is a welcome introduction to a series that has been eagerly anticipated by those engaged in the growing field of performance philosophy. … This book is aimed at those interested in philosophy, those interested in performance and, primarily, those scholars who are interested in how each speaks to the other.” (Liz Tomlin, Contemporary Theatre Review, Vol. 26 (1), February, 2016)
