Author: Christine Ross | Reference: P3653 | ISBN: 978-0816645398

Singularities: Dance in the Age of Performance

Author: Andre Lepecki | Reference: P2985 | ISBN: 978-1138907713

Lepecki surveys a decade of experimental choreography to uncover the dual meaning of ‘performance’ in the twenty-first century: not just an aesthetic category, but a mode of political power.
