Description

Belgian-Moroccan Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and British-Bengali Akram Khan are two of today’s most prolific choreographers. Given their respective backgrounds and the practices they pursue, their artistic universes are largely built around their identity in-between dance cultures. Dramaturg Guy Cools, who accompanied both, situates their work within the larger critical debate on the (post)modern and (post-)migrant identity. With a uniquely privileged insight into their creative practices, Cools details some of their iconic pieces. He also shows how they invent a new and much-needed social imagery ̶ which is both dialogical and embedded in a lived, migratory experience ̶ for present-day living in a globalized environment. As such, In-between Dance Cultures offers a complementary view on questions of cultural identity taking the contemporary dancer’s somatic awareness and knowledge of the body as its starting point.

Soft cover, perfect-bound, b/w.
