Abstract (English)

As she notes in the introduction, the editor Fusco has compiled a selection of photos, scripts, essays and poetry to both represent and bring together not only Latino performance artists from Latin America, the US, and Europe, but also the differing critical perspectives on them. She unites both scholarly and creative interventions and encourages the comparison and contrast of the contents, which encompass a variety of cultures, traditions, politics, and sexualities. Index. Notes on contributors. Circa 260 bibl. ref.
