Identity and Choreographic Practice

The fifth instalment of a series of publication produced by Serendipity. Identity and Choreographic Practice examines how culture and training influence choreographic vocabulary, and also touch upon how identity is revealed in practice. Leading practitioners and researchers explore topics ranging from the challenges and triumphs faced by Black dancers when attempting to break the glass ceiling of classical ballet, a reflection on colonial pasts and new aesthetics, and a discussion of how the rich, diverse and complex heritage of the African and African Caribbean diaspora has influenced contemporary dance.
