Performance, Transport and Mobility is an investigation into how performance moves, how it engages with ideas about movement, and how it potentially shapes our experiences of movement.

Editorial Reviews

'Fiona Wilkie's work in the past has contributed massively to our understanding of site specificity. In this wonderful new publication, she turns her attention to what in sociology and geography is known as the 'mobilities turn', and traces its impact in and on contemporary performance practice. The book is brilliantly researched and beautifully written; it is also timely, original and fascinating. It expands the remit of theatre and performance studies, and makes an important contribution to interdisciplinary knowledge and exchange. It can't recommend it enough.' - Carl Lavery, University of Glasgow, UK
