Dance( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection surveys the choreographic turn in the artistic imagination from the 1950s onwards, and in doing so outlines the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental dance. By introducing and discussing the concepts of embodiment and corporeality, choreopolitics, and the notion of dance in an expanded field, Dance establishes the aesthetics and politics of dance as a major impetus in contemporary culture. It offers testimonies and writings by influential visual artists whose work has taken inspiration from dance and choreography."--Publlisher
Move : choreographing you : art and dance since the 1960s( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Move : choreographing you explores the interaction between visual art and dance since the 1960s. Focusing on visual artists and choreographers who create sculptures and installations that direct the movements of audiences, making them dancers as much as active participants, Move sets out to show that choreography is not merely about the notation of movement on paper or in film, but that it may be equally implied by sculptural works and installations. The publication presents some of the diverse yet interconnected ways that visual art and choreography have come together over the last fifty years

Hands, eyes, butts and thighs : women's labor, sexuality, and movement technique from Senegal through the diaspora by Angela D Gittens( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation asserts that the movements of Wolof-speaking women in Senegal, also recognized as techniques of the body, serve very culturally specific purposes that are taught from generation to generation. These techniques sustain the woman's distinctive expressivity and agency to comment publicly on her relationships and her social surroundings. An important aspect of this dissertation focuses on hearing the voice of the common African woman whose contributions to traditional oral literature have been minimally recognized. Similarly, the African diasporic woman's voice has been considered insignificant in comparison to what she is able to produce physically. Thus, part of this dissertation amplifies the traditional Wolof-speaking woman's voice in response to her immediate environment, while another part of the document places the Black female dancing body in diaspora in the spotlight to observe how she speaks back at various situations by using her body's movements as a coded language
Moving without the colonial mirror: Modernity, dance, and nation in the works of Vera Mantero and Francisco Camacho (1985--1997) by Andr Lepecki( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through Michael Taussig's notion of the "colonial mirror of production of reality," the dissertation locates dance as instrumental for an understanding of post-colonial Portuguese society. Through Eduardo Lourenco's notion of "imagology," the dissertation identifies the works of Camacho and Mantero as unique critiques of the images generated by the Portuguese about their own cultural and political identities
