Danse: An Anthology
An anthology of key writings on choreography across the French, U.S., and international dance scenes since the turn of the century.
Danse – An Anthology traces the ways in which contemporary dance has become a site for vital experiments on questions of the body, identity, belonging, knowledge economies, and globalization. This dynamic and wide-ranging collection maps the numerous exchanges between Francophone and Anglophone performance cultures and critical thought. Many of the texts included in this volume are translated into English for the first time.
Danse is a multifaceted initiative organized by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York exploring contemporary dance through performances, talks and critical writing. In conjunction with Danse – A French-American Festival of Performance and Ideas, New York, May 1-18, 2014, with 17 companies from France, two publications are produced, Danse – An Anthology and Danse – A Catalogue (forthcoming).
