Yes? No! Maybe... Seductive Ambiguity in Dance

Emilyn Claid

Book




Yes? No! Maybe... Seductive Ambiguity in Dance is a book about performing and watching dance. Using a unique combination of historical, academic and autobiographical voices, it covers 50 years of British dance, from Margot Fonteyn in the 1950's to innovative contemporary practitioners such as Wendy Houstoun, Nigel Charnock, Lloyd Newson, Javier de Frutos and Fin Walker. 

Emilyn Claid's thought-provoking investigation of performing presence is illuminated by episodes from her own history as founder member of X6 Dance Space, the experimental dance collective, and as one of the UK's most radical and exciting practitioners. 

Routledge, 2006. 13.8 x 21.6 cm, 256 pages, paperback, black and white images throughout.
