Planes of Composition: Dance, Theory and the Global (Enactments) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gathering 18 original essays by eminent choreographers, philosophers, and dance and performance theorists from across the globe, The Planes of Composition focuses on how contemporary choreographic strategies initiate new modes of understanding the moving body in its multiple performances: racial, kinetic, political, ethical, and theoretical. Adding to the expanding field of critical dance studies and critical movement studies, the contributors address a variety of formations arising from hybrid theoretical and performative compositions—compositions of everyday kinetics with philosophical considerations of political modernity; compositions of certain staged choreographic works with the formations of racial identities in specific postcolonial contexts; compositions between embodied practices and theoretical practices.

 

This volume will be of interest to scholars in critical dance studies, philosophy, performance studies, and cultural and postcolonial studies as it proposes new and creative dialogues among these disciplines.
