"The authors provide perceptive and provocative analyses as well as intriguing discussions of performance examples that are not frequently recognized ... The plurality of voices, from various disciplines, allows for a rich and enlightening diversity of views, and the book’s interdisciplinary scope allows it to be an important work for scholars in Asian studies, theatre and performance studies, and critical globalization studies."
- Marcus Cheng Chye Tan, Pacific Affairs, Volume 93, No. 3, September 2020
"The reader will be rewarded with rich accounts of a range of performative practices, some of which are more obviously of an artistic bend, and some which are perhaps more imaginative in their use of the idea of performative moments. The volume is to be recommended for advanced students in search of a fresh and promising take on matters of globalisation and modernity in Asia."
- Ivan Kwek, Asian Journal of Social Science, Winter 2019
"Thanks to its cross-disciplinary approach, this anthology would work in courses in a variety of subject areas, including theater, communications, cultural studies, and the visual arts. It would also be appropriate for upper-level undergraduate research seminars or for a graduate-level survey course on performance studies. It should also appeal to scholars interested in expanding their knowledge of performance studies framed through the lens of globalization."
