Its focus is the historical, cultural and political contexts that inform choreographic and dance practices and critical readings of dance--in other words, how dance operates as critical discourse. The question that runs throughout the essays is the theoretical and political problem of "how dances come to be seen," how the presence of the body leaves its mark on critical theories and performances. Focusing exclusively on 20th century dance, the interdisciplinary perspectives range from history to race studies, deconstruction, Marxist theory, feminist theory, literary studies and feminist ethnography. The anthology provides an overview of the current methodologies and theoretical developments in the field of dance studies. These essays expand our understanding of the performing body, and their organization around the epistemological problem in dance studies--the dynamics of seeing, remembering and writing--will make the collection useful for classes in dance criticism and theory, cultural theory, performance studies, and aesthetics. CONTRIBUTORS: Barbara Browning, Ramsey Burt, Thomas De Frantz, Mark Franko, Andre Lepecki, Karmen MacKendrick, Susan Manning, Randy Martin, Peggy Phelan.

    A very inspiring collection of essays about dance, performance art, questions of presence/absence, gender roles, race, and the Derridean concept of trace in performance.

    Presencia del cuerpo... danza y teoría sobre el performance. El libro, escribe el editor, es algo que se originó a partir de intercambios de ideas, prácticas, dudas y cuestiones histórico-filosóficas en torno a lo que llamaron "Moving Ideologies", en 1996. Esta conferencia se presentó en el segundo encuentro sobre Estudios del Performance en la Universidad Northwestern University. Barbara Brownin, Mark Franko, Richard Green, André Lepecki, Peggy Phelan, entre otros, propusieron una compilación de Presencia del cuerpo... danza y teoría sobre el performance. El libro, escribe el editor, es algo que se originó a partir de intercambios de ideas, prácticas, dudas y cuestiones histórico-filosóficas en torno a lo que llamaron "Moving Ideologies", en 1996. Esta conferencia se presentó en el segundo encuentro sobre Estudios del Performance en la Universidad Northwestern University. Barbara Brownin, Mark Franko, Richard Green, André Lepecki, Peggy Phelan, entre otros, propusieron una compilación de 9 ensayos en torno a la idea de una nueva teoría crítica de la danza y los estudios performáticos. Los ensayos reunidos muestras los cruces entre los campos de estudio de la danza, la teoría crítica, el marxismo, la teoría de género, la antropología y la etnografía. Excelente como una perspectiva sobre el cuerpo, el performance, la danza, lo performativo y la performatividad.

    So far good...but very heavily academic. A slow read.
