«Callens's book is one of the most recent in Peter Lang's ‘Dramaturgies’ series edited by Marc Maufort, and like others in the series is a thoroughly useful book for teaching and research purposes. Its bold engagement with the visceral qualities of performance also makes it an inspiring text for theatre practitioners. [...] ‘The Wooster Group and Its Traditions’ makes a welcome addition to the study of the crisis in contemporary avant-garde theatre.» (David O'Donnell, Illusions)
