About this book

A border is a force of containment that inspires dreams of being overcome and crossed; motivates bodies to climb over; and threatens physical harm. This book critically examines a range of cultural performances produced in relation to the tensions and movements of/about the borders dividing North America, including the Caribbean.

Reviews

“Featuring scholars from Cultural, Visual and Performance Studies, as well as sociology and ethnomusicology, the book focuses on the notion of borderlands as it manifests in and through performance. … Performance in the Borderlands is an extremely rich, dense, well-informed and very informative volume. Covering a multiplicity of topics in various border zones, these essays offer fascinating new scholarship in the fields of Border and Performance Studies.” (Astrid M. Fellner, Journal of Contemporary Drama in English, Vol. 4 (2), November, 2016)

'... offers an exciting series of perspectives, readings, and cross-disciplinary engagements with this most important theme and makes a persuasive case for the contribution performance studies can make to the wider border studies field... This volume will be of interest to scholars and students in performance, cultural and border studies: it presents a rich, rewarding, and timely series of readings which will add considerably to the potentialities and provocations of work in this field.' - Sophie Nield, Contemporary Theatre Review
