About this book

What world has been constructed for dancing through the use of the term 'world dance'? What kinds of worlds do we as scholars create for a given dance when we undertake to describe and analyze it? This book endeavours to make new epistemological space for the analysis of the world's dance by offering a variety of new analytic approaches.

Reviews

'The range of articles makes Foster's collection both methodologically and thematically an invaluable resource far beyond dance, and relevant for anyone in performance and theatre studies wrestling with the complexity of writing history from a global perspective.'

- Sabine Sörgel, Aberystwyth University, UK, Theatre Research International
