Focusing on Politics, Gender, and Identities, a group of international dance scholars provide a broad overview ofnbsp;new methodological approachesnbsp; with specific case studiesnbsp; and how they can be applied to the study of ballet and modern dance. With an introduction exploring the history of dance studies and the development of central themes and areas of concerns in the field, the book is then divided into three parts: politics explores 'Ausdruckstanz'nbsp; an expressive dance tradition first formulated in the 1920s by dancer Mary Wigman and carried forward in the work of Pina Bausch and others gender examines eighteenthnbsp;century theatrical dancenbsp; a time when elaborate sets, costumes, and plots examined racial and sexual stereotypes identity is concerned with modern dance. Exploring contemporary analytical approaches to understanding performance traditions, Dance Discourses' nbsp;pedagogical structure makes it ideal forcourses in performing arts and humanities.
