Choreographing difference : the body and identity in contemporary dance by Ann Cooper Albright( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The choreographies of Bill T. Jones, Cleveland Ballet Dancing Wheels, Zab Maboungou, David Dorfman, Marie Chouinard, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, and others, have helped establish dance as a crucial discourse of the 90s. These dancers, Ann Cooper Albright argues, are asking the audience to see the body as a source of cultural identity - a physical presence that moves with and through its gendered, racial, and social meanings. Though her articulate and nuanced analysis of contemporary choreography, Albright shows how the dancing body shifts conventions of representation and provides a critical example of the dialectical relationship between cultures and the bodies that inhabited them. As a dancer, feminist, and philosopher, Albright turns to the material experience of bodies, not just the body as a figure or metaphor, to understand how cutural representation becomes embedded in the body. In arguing for the intelligence of bodies, Choreographing Difference is itself a testimonial, giving voice to some important political, moral, and artistic questions of our time."--Jacket

"For Albright, dancing is a physical inquiry, a way of experiencing and participating in the world, and her writing reflects an interdisciplinary approach to seeing and thinking about dance. In her angagement both as a dancer and a scholar, Albright draws on her kinesthetic sensibilities as well as her intellectual knowledge to articulate how movement creates meaning"--Publisher's description

Mining the dancefield : feminist theory and contemporary dance by Ann Cooper Albright( )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation draws on the work of feminist literary and film critics to look at the dances of five contemporary choreographers: Nancy Stark Smith, Blondell Cummings, Johanna Boyce, Marie Chouinard and Pooh Kaye. The individual chapters use several dances from each woman's choreographic oeuvre to illustrate the way the dancing body can stretch certain discussions in feminist theory concerning questions of subjectivity, issues of identity and community, the role of autobiography and a writing signature within a construction of the self, and the impact of the male gaze on the representation of sexuality and desire in dance
