Summary "Dance surveys the choreographic turn in the arts from the 1950s onwards, exploring the philosophies of movement instrumental to the development of experimental dance, the concepts of embodiment, corporeality, choreopolitics, and the notion of dance in an expanded field. Establishing the aesthetics and politics of dance as a major impetus in contemporary culture, it includes writings by influential artists whose work is inspired by dance and choreography"--Back cover.
