Bodies of Thought: 12 Australian Choreographers features a generation of award-winning, innovative Australian choreographers with international reputations and legacies of influence.
Focusing on a work by each artist - with an interview and an essay by a leading dance scholar - this groundbreaking book offers invaluable insights into the creation of remarkable works, at a time when Australian dance is enjoying international acclaim.
'Beautifully designed and with great photos, this could be a "coming of age" book for Australian Dance Studies.' - Stephen Muecke, Professor of Writing, School of the Arts and Media, University of New South Wales
'The field of innovative dance in Australia is vibrant and diverse. With their extensive background as writers in the field, the editors have created a collection of essays that offers a lucid account of a wide range of experimental dance work and conveys some of the excitement it generates in live performance. Combined with the RealTimeDance web portal, this book makes an important and timely contribution.' - Jane Goodall, Adjunct Professor, Writing and Society Research Group, The University of Western Sydney
