"In the territory Steinman explores—risk, play, improvisation, the dual image of the performer and persona—her fine prose builds firmly, gracefully and movingly to what she considers the basic, too often unacknowledged function of the performer as storyteller: ‘to remind us of our mortality.’"
—Deborah Jowitt

"…a visceral experience, a temporal tome that transcends the limits of a ‘good read.’ Most readers will come away from The Knowing Body with an enriched sense of their own movement through the world as well as a greater understanding of the work of many new artists."
—Morrie Warshawski
