The field of performance studies covers all kinds of performance behavior in all contexts. This volume investigates performance behavior in a variety of circumstances and cultures. The contributors consider such issues as the relationship between training and the finished performance; whether performance behavior is universal or culturally specific; and the relationships among ritual and aesthetics, popular entertainment and religion, and sports and theater and dance.
