About the Book

This collection of new essays explores the many ways in which writing relates to corporeality and how the two work together to create, resist or mark the body of the “Other.” Contributors draw on their varied backgrounds to examine different movement practices, with a focus on movement as a meaning-making process—including the choreographic act of writing. The challenges faced by marginalized bodies are discussed, along with ability of a body to question, contest and re-write historical narratives.
