Dance & Performance

Global Groove: Art, Dance, Performance & Protest

Which influences between the West and the Far East have shaped the history of dance? A vivid chronicle of artistic contacts between the cultures has developed, from early performances of Asian dancers at colonial exhibitions in Europe and pioneers of modern dance via first happenings of Japanese Butoh dancers to contemporary performances.

This opulent standard work has been compiled by international experts. By means of over 270 photographs, paintings, sculptures, films and performances, it illustrates how new forms of expression in dance and art arise through transcultural encounters. The language of which dance is made – steps, gestures, happenings, processes and rituals – is shown alongside its materials – bodies, light, colour, fabric and haziness. Its effects go beyond its aesthetic value and extend into the societal, cultural and political development of modern societies.
