'... 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
