A brilliantly lucid account of the tangled histories and contemporary partnership of theatre and dance.
*Susan Manning, Northwestern University, USA*

The ideal guide to the complex entanglements of theatre and dance. A distillation of Elswit's expertise, broad in scope and rich in elegantly formulated insights.
*Nicholas Ridout, Queen Mary University of London, UK*

The book was excellent ... If you work in a department of Theatre and Dance and you have an annual department retreat, I do think everyone should buy this book and read it and talk about it together.
*On TAP Podcast*

Theatre & Dance is an endlessly useful book … Elswit’s text manages the difficult task of distilling with energy, clarity, and insight an interdisciplinary and often contentious conversation about performance histories, aesthetics, and practices.
*Ariel Nereson, University at Buffalo, SUNY in Theatre Survey (2019)*
