MEDIA REVIEWS

'A book that asks the questions about performance that come before the commonly asked is a book that approaches a theatre philosophy. If such a thing were not a contradiction in terms Simon Bayly's A Pathognomy of Performance would provide us with the exemplary exception we have been waiting for.' - Alan Read, Professor of Theatre, King's College London, UK

'What this book offers on the study of the fleeting and transcendent is ultimately highly substantial, as well as provocative and wholly scholarly...' -Journal of Theatre Research International
