Beschreibungen

This book addresses the need for critical scholarship about contemporary dance practices in Ireland. Bringing together key voices from a new wave of scholarship to examine recent practice and research in the field of contemporary dance, it examines the excitingly diverse range of choreographers and works that are transforming Ireland’s performance landscape. The first section provides a chronologically-ordered collection of critical essays to ground the reader in some of the most important issues currently at play in contemporary dance in Ireland. The second section then provides an interrogation of individual choreographers’ processes. The book traces new choreographic work and trends through a broad array of topics, including somatics in performance, screendance, cultural trauma, dance archives, affect studies, feminist perspectives, choreographic process, the dancer’s voice, interdisciplinarity, and pedagogical paradigms.

“Its fresh approach to contemporary practice in Ireland provides a critical appraisal of the relationship between social, cultural and historical ideas of body and society through an analysis of particular companies, choreographers and specific performance pieces. Drawing on work from dancers and choreographers, as well as academics, this book has potential to bring new evidence and debates to the contemporary performance arena, as well as revealing material that often lies hidden.” (Dr Ann R. David, Head of Dance and Reader in Dance Studies, University of Roehampton, UK)
