Write The First Customer Review

Compared to the wealth of information available to us about classical tragedy and comedy, not much is known about the culture of pantomime, mime, and dance in late antiquity. Webb fills this gap in our knowledge and provides us with a detailed look at social life in the late antique period through an investigation of its performance culture.
