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.
