Why theatre and dance?

Making a compelling case for the significance of resisting genre distinctions in the arts, Kate Elswit demonstrates why and how the interdependence between theatre and dance needs to be understood as the rule, rather than the exception. This illuminating text focuses on the interconnected ecosystems of practice that constitute performance history, the expansion of theatre and dance forms on contemporary North American and European stages, and the disciplinary methods that scholars use today to understand such practices, both past and present.

Its interdisciplinary focus should allow the text to appeal widely to students from Theatre and Dance backgrounds
