Praise For…


"Disability Culture and Community Performance is an artist's book on various creative journeys through diverse cultural and historical settings, but it is also a careful investigation into the methodical consequences emanating from crossings of theory and practice. Furthermore it is an activist intervention and contribution to the doing of disability culture." - Anneka Esch-van Kan, KULT online, Interdisciplinary Review Journal for the Study of Culture
