This chapter provides a detailed contextualising for the book, situating the collection in a broad theoretical and historical framework. It references the meetings that brought together experts in dance and visual arts, which led to the book. The discussion outlines the two main themes in the book that are explored by the writers-the subjective, lived relations with objects and the social sphere, and the different approaches to absence, visibility and resistance. Drawing on diverse theories and viewpoints, the introduction outlines each chapter, describing how the writers open up new thinking about dance and visual art, and the connections between each discipline’s discourses and practices.
