Dancing Off the Page Summary


Dancing Off the Page: Integrating Performance, Choreography Analysis and Notation/Documentation by Rachel Duerden

'What is choreographic style?' 'What is the nature of the relationship between performance, choreography, analysis and documentation?' 'How do students of dance integrate theory and practice?' 'What is embodied knowledge?' These questions are explored in "Dancing off the Page" through both scholarly essays and practical studio projects. The book draws on practical choreographic and documentation techniques and on philosophical questions relating to the notion of 'style' in choreography and performance. Thus, it offers a range of perspectives on the making, performing, analysis and documentation of dance that encourages a thoroughly integrated approach to dance studies. The contributors draw on their experience as practitioners, academics and teachers in the exploration of the nature of the relationship between performance, choreography, analysis and documentation, and the potential of notation in various forms to run as a connecting thread through the whole. With original choreographic studies and music, "Dancing off the Page" offers a unique opportunity for students to discover the inter-relationship of strands of dance studies. The challenges of practice as research and the embodiment of knowledge are met here with both imagination and common sense.
