The roles dance and space play in constructing subjectivity are explored here in close readings of American, British and European contemporary dances. Informed by ideas from contemporary critical theories, the book (now available in paperback) investigates site-specific dance, the mutual construction of bodies and spaces, body-space interfaces and 'in-between spaces'. Alternative subjectivities are suggested by reading the dances and dance films against the grain to reveal their potential for troubling conventional notions of subjectivity associated with a white, Western, heterosexual, able-bodied, male norm. The works of choreographers such as Lea Anderson, Pina Bausch, Trisha Brown, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, William Forsythe, Shobana Jeyasingh and Mark Morris are explored alongside the theories of writers such as Mikhail Bakhtin, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Donna Haraway, Julia Kristeva and Henri Lefebvre. The result is a fascinating mix of ideas and practice never before placed together within the context of dance studies.
