“A wonderfully crafted study of the Filipina/o performing body that utilizes a cross-historical, multi-sited and capaciously analyzed set of archives.”
—Martin Manalansan, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
“A magnificent work by a stellar Filipino/a American scholar attuned to the transnational and cross-racial dimensions of embodied struggle....The book displays the very astonishing creativity and sense of possibility that it brings to light.”
—Neferti Tadiar, Barnard College
“[PuroArte] is foregrounded in deeply observed historical context and a well-measured assessment of culture and politics imbued with thoughtful and caring sentiment. Puro Arte is an important study not only for those with interest in theater studies but important for students and scholars of ethnic studies, postcolonial theory, and Asian American history.”
—, American Studies
“Situating Filipino mimicry within the logic of empire and globalization, Puro Arte is an original, insightful, and ultimately delightful take on the possibilities of the Filipino/a performing body to exceed its own erasure.”
—Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas
