The Dancing of the title was in Shakespeare's mind as he wrote: a physical and active imagination. This book studies its operation in his most frequently performed texts and encourages readers to seek out the performance possibilities of all the texts for themselves.

The need to study Shakespeare's plays as they come to life in a theatre is now widely recognised. John Russell Brown moves beyond an exploration of what has happened in a number of specific productions to examine the entire theatrical event in which a performance occurs: the meeting and interaction of actors and audience, and the social and cultural contexts of a play's reception in the past and at the present time. Assuming no prior knowledge of theatre practice and offering practical advice for further investigations, Shakespeare Dancing is written for all who study Shakespeare's work in search of a fuller understanding, or as a preparation for performance.
