Dance [And] Theory
Edited by: Gabriele Brandstetter and Gabriele Klein, with the editorial assistance of Melanie Haller and Heike Luken.
Includes a chapter by former College at Brockport faculty member Susan Leigh Foster: Dancing and theorizing and theorizing dancing.
Both the identity of dance and that of theory are at risk as soon as the two intertwine. This anthology of revisions of the papers and proceedings of an international conference held in April 2011 in Berlin collects observations by choreographers and scholars, dancers, dramaturges and dance theorists in an effort to trace the multiple ways in which dance and theory correlate and redefine each other: What is the nature of their relationship? How can we outline a theory of dance from our particular historical perspective which will cover dance both as a practice and as an academic concept? The contributions examine which concepts, interdependencies and discontinuities of dance and theory are relevant today and promise to engage us in the future. They address crucial topics of the current debate in dance and performance studies such as artistic research, aesthetics, politics, visuality, archives, and the "next generation."
