Abstract (English)

"The contributors look at bodies engaged in practices as varied as pageantry, physical education, festivals and exhibitions, tourism, and social and theatrical dance. Thy succeed in bringing these bodies to life with all the political, gendered, racial and aesthetic resonances of which bodily motion is capable. Dance is used in this volume as a theoretical framework to assist the reader in understanding the body's permanent transience, and in the task of transposing its movements into words and its choregraphy into theory. " -- p. [4] of cover.
