"Readings in Performance and Ecology assembles a broad range of essays that take as their respective foci ecological debates, animals in performance, ecoactivism, landscapes and bodies, ecocriticism in dramatic literature, and the practicalities of theatremaking . . . Whereas ecocriticism has emerged from the discipline of literary criticism as a rich subfield, terms such as 'ecodramaturgy' and 'ecodirecting' have not yet carved out a place in the vernacular of theatre and performance studies. This anthology seeks to do this." - The Drama Review
"The book features a very strong collection of essays, which reshape theatre in a field of diverse practices . . . Although theatre is conventionally assumed to be human-centred, the book has perfectly represented the power of the 'other-than-human' world and the outer landscape in the history of drama . . . fascinating and thought-provoking." - Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism
"The real strength of this edited collection is Arons and May's guiding vision of 'the fierce, inexorable interconnectivity between nature and human culture' . . . these essays successfully interweave performance and story to show us why and how our telling matters." - ISLE
