Editorial Reviews


Performing the rhythms of life requires paying close attention to the relation between body and space. The emphasis on ritual as a means of searching out this relation is important, and makes for a vibrant and rewarding book. (Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick)

Space–Body–Ritual is a pioneering book that explores the relationship between architectural space and the body in addition to examining the performativity in India's holy city of Varanasi. The sacrality of space and time, functionality of the lifeways, and spatiality of architectural places are vividly illustrated with theoretical constructs, spatial models, and narratives of the ongoing ritual dramas that converge into the making of ‘place ballet'. This book is a tour de force. (Rana P.B. Singh, Banaras Hindu University, India)
