Editorial Reviews

Review

"LaMothe's succulent attention to the phenomenology of dance technique draws persuasive power from beyond the writing itself. Nietzsche's Dancers is not only a study in the recreation of religious values; it is an expression of the bodily conditions it explores. And, in this regard, the joyous engagement expressed on every page refers readers to lived practices of kinetic fluency as the basis for affirmation of life." - Journal of the American Academy of Religion"Strangely, Christianity, the religion of the incarnation - the 'Word made flesh' - has failed to develop the implications of the intimate relationship between incarnation and dance. In this fascinating and important book, LaMothe addresses Christianity's hostility toward dance, an opposition between dance and religion reinforced by scholarship that consistently ignores one or the other. LaMothe shows that the dancers Isadora Duncan and Martha Graham responded to Nietzsche's advocacy for a 'dancing religion' by creating dances designed to 'catalyze a renaissance of religion, especially Christianity.' LaMothe argues passionately for awareness of the 'physiological conditions of meaning,' and the realization of an incarnation grounded in breathing and movement." - Margaret R. Miles, Emerita Professor of Historical Theology, The Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, and author of The Word Made Flesh: A History of Christian Thought
