Decentring Dancing Texts: The Challenge of Interpreting Dances

Decentring Dancing Texts: The Challenge of Interpreting Dances

Edited by

Janet Lansdale

Decentring Dancing Texts analyses recent dance practices in the theatre, in club culture and on film, addressing their interdisciplinary relationship with music, painting and plays through new theoretical positions. Covering works by Lea Anderson, Jerome Bel, Jonathan Burrows, Mats Ek, Akram Khan, Shobana Jeyasingh, Ian Spink and Loic Touze, the book also contains an original essay on New York youngsters dancing in the film Mad Hot Ballroom. The contributors use insights from web-based theories of intertextuality to analyse the making of new television dance and to construct the spectator as co-creator of meaning in the work, with the original maker.
