LSE Literary Festival - Dance, Text, and Translation: Creating a Dialogue
Speaker(s): Professor Helen Thomas, Jasmin Vardimon
Chair: Professor Luc Bovens
Recorded on 12 February 2010 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
Dance is generally concerned with non-verbal bodily communication, while literature is text-based and disembodied. However, the long relationship between dance and text has been explored both through textual interfaces by collapsing the boundaries between different art forms such as physical theatre, dance and literature and within the world of text, these boundaries are negotiated through the body of literature written about dance.
