WINNER OF THE 2013 DE LA TORRE BUENO SPECIAL CITATION FOR SCHOLARSHIP IN DANCE AWARD

"I enjoyed reading this book, which is very well written, focuses on a well-selected range of performance practices in Senegal and makes an interesting contribution to studies in that field. [It] provides intelligent analysis of performances by relating them in interesting and innovative ways, but its main strength lies in... offering wonderful ethnographic detail that brings out the contested nature of dance in relations between dancers and their audiences."  ·  Ferdinand de Jong, University of East Anglia

"This is an absolutely first-class study. It ranges across space, genre and time, though with contemporary Senegalese perspectives always to the fore. It is artfully narrated, and the voice of a well-qualified and extremely thoughtful author is clear and distinct throughout. I would put it at the forefront of dance studies today, and it also makes a valuable contribution both to anthropological thinking about expressive culture, and to West Africa studies in general."  ·  Martin Stokes, King's College, London
