Description - Critical Moves by Randy Martin

This text presents an inquiry into the relationship between dance, politics and cultural theory. It illustrates how the study and practice of dance can re-animate arrested prospects for progressive politics and social change. From experimental and concert dance to more popular expressions, the author engages a range of performances and demonstrates how a critical reflection on dance helps promote fluency in the language of mobilization that political theory alludes to yet rarely speaks. Looking at various areas of popular culture, Martin aims to reveal how the mastery of modern dance technique teaches an individual body to express cultural differences and display its intrinsic diversity, concluding with a reflection on the contribution dance studies can make to other fields within cultural studies and the social sciences.
