Identity, the contemporary and the dancers

Isabelle Ginot 1
1 Analyse des discours et pratiques en danse
Esthétiques, musicologie, danse et créations musicales - MUSIDANSE
Abstract : « This aside, numerous theoretical boundaries continue to operate in both choreographic practices and theoretical research, as attested in the introduction to this section regarding the anthropological perspective and in the three case-studies focused on contemporary “avant-garde” dance works. Take, for example, the analyses of “identitarian” issues in contemporary dance orienting the three studies devoted to performances and representations of identity in selected works (masculinity/femininity, Black Atlantic/European American, and so forth). But what about contemporary dance as a social environment and a place where identity is formed, beginning, for example, from a dancer’s education and training? »
