Abstract

Abstract:

This review of Performance Studies in Canada edited by Laura Levin and Marlis Schweitzer argues that its most important contributions are the arguments it makes for paying attention to Indigeneity and to decolonizing practices, and the many, varied decolonizing practices it demonstrates. The review also admires the collection's commitments to exploring diverse ways of knowing, from the sensory through embodiment and textuality. Finally, the review appreciates the book's consistent and rigorous attention to grounding research and arguments in detailed local specificity. All three of these emphases—on Indigeneity, diverse ways of knowing, and local knowledges—demonstrate the collection's through-running commitment to respect and preserve differences while facilitating communication across them.
