Abstract

This review of the edited collection Performance and the Global City engages in an extended conversation initiated by D. J. Hopkins and Kim Solga between performance studies and urban studies. It values the regional breadth of cities from the global South and global North that may not be conventional exemplars in urban scholarship yet can reframe and reimagine what constitutes a global city in practice. Case studies that showcase the political power of performance to both question and reimagine the urban are highlighted. Through intimate micro-portraits and performative glimpses the global city is shown to be networked and connected, but also lived and experienced in finely grained particularities.
