Geographies of Dance : Body, Movement, and Corporeal Negotiations Paperback / softback
Edited by Adam M. Pine, Olaf Kuhlke
This volume provides a theoretical and practical examination of the relationships between bodies, dance and space.
Using ten case studies, it illustrates the symbolic power of dance that is crafted by choreographers and acted out by dancers.
The book portrays a multitude of ways in which public and private spaces (stages, buildings, town squares as well as natural environments) are transformed and made meaningful by dance. Furthermore, it explores the meaning of dance as emotionally experienced by dancers, and examines how movement in certain spaces creates meaning without the use of words or symbols.
