Moving Sites Investigating Site-Specific Dance Performance

Victoria Hunter, "Moving Sites: Investigating Site-Specific Dance Performance"
2015 | ISBN-10: 0415713250, 0415710170 | 510 pages | PDF | 77 MB


Moving Sites explores site-specific dance practice through a combination of analytical essays and practitioner accounts of their working processes. In offering this joint effort of theory and practice, it aims to provide dance academics, students and practitioners with a series of discussions that shed light both on approaches to making this type of dance practice, and evaluating and reflecting on it.

The edited volume combines critical thinking from a range of perspectives including commentary and observation from the fields of dance studies, human geography and spatial theory in order to present interdisciplinary discourse and a range of critical and practice-led lenses through which this type of work can be considered and explored. In so doing, this book addresses the following questions:

' How do choreographers make site-specific dance performance?

' What occurs when a moving body engages with site, place and environment?

' How might we interpret, analyse and evaluate this type of dance practice through a range of theoretical lenses?

' How can this type of practice inform wider discussions of embodiment, site, space, place and environment?

This innovative and exciting book seeks to move beyond description and discussion of site-specific dance as a spectacle or novelty and considers site-dance as a valid and vital form of contemporary dance practice that explores, reflects, disrupts, contests and develops understandings and practices of inhabiting and engaging with a range of sites and environments.

Dr Victoria Hunter is Senior Lecturer in Dance at the University of Chichester.
