Description - Dance, Space and Subjectivity by Valerie A. Briginshaw

This book contains readings of American, British and European postmodern dances informed by feminist, postcolonialist, queer and poststructuralist theories. It explores the roles dance and space play in constructing subjectivity. By focusing on site specific dance, the mutual construction of bodies and spaces, body space interfaces and "in between spaces", the dances and dance films are read "against the grain" to reveal their potential for troubling conventional notions of subjectivity associated with a white, Western, heterosexual able-bodied, male norm.
