Hours & Credits
The history of both modern and post-modern performance practice has been marked by performances which have
troubled the distinction between 'dance' and 'theatre'. However, dance and theatre have often been supposed
to have radically different aesthetics and to cater to different audiences. This module will consider dance
as a theatrical practice, and more specifically, performances and practitioners of 'dance-theatre' - why
might we consider them in terms of this hyphenated category? The module will draw on a wide range of
international examples, but will also require you to attend contemporary performance in London.
