Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Barbara Browning combines a lyrical, personal narrative with incisive theoretical accounts of Brazilian dance cultures. While she brings ethnographic, historiographic, and musicological scholarship to bear on her subject, Browning writes as a dancer, fully engaged in the dance cultures of Brazil and of Brazilian exile communities in the U.S.

Synopsis:

... provides dance studies with much needed data and ideas for analyses which will look further than dance-as-text, or dance-as-reflection-of-culture. — Dance Research Journal

Browning employs her perspectives as a dancer and literary theorist in this very readable book on various dance forms in contemporary Brazil. — Choice

... a work that is not only evocative, but provocative. — Bulletin of Latin American Research
