Editorial Reviews



"How exciting it is to have this elegantly organized collection of new theories of dance, performance, and culture as they are being developed in Germany. The field urgently needs this anthology, which gives readers a marvelous grasp of the complex history of German dance and the new methodologies that are being developed there."--Susan Leigh Foster, author of Choreographing Empathy: Kinesthesia in Performance


"New German Dance Studies fills a research gap in English-speaking countries regarding the direction dance studies has taken in a German context. A useful compendium of the various personalities and new theories about how to approach modern research in the field."--Helga Kraft, coeditor of Writing against Boundaries: Nationality, Ethnicity, and Gender in the German-speaking Context

"Rich in illuminating historical detail. . . . pulsating with freshness of perception, and very well documented with abundant and quite valuable endnotes." --H-German
