Description

Through discussion of a dazzling array of artists in India and the diaspora, this book delineates a new language of dance on the global stage. Myriad movement vocabularies intersect the dancers' creative landscape, while cutting-edge creative choreography parodies gender and cultural stereotypes, and represents social issues.

"To read Katrak's book is to come away with a sense of delight in how far dance writing has come in capturing layered and multiple activities, perceptions, and knowledge." - Uttara Asha Coorlawala, Barnard College, Columbia University, USA
