Choreographic process is increasingly examined, shared and discussed in a variety of academic, artistic and performative contexts. More than ever before, post-show discussions, artistic blogs, books, archives, seminars and sharings provide opportunities for choreographers to explain their individual methodologies. Performing Process: Sharing Dance and Choreographic Practice provides a unique theoretical examination of this current trend in dance scholarship. The chapters in this collection examine the methods, politics and philosophy of sharing choreographic process, aiming to investigate the theoretical repercussions and the implications on forms of knowledge, the appreciation of dance, education and artistic practices.
