    Abstract

    This article considers Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) within a frame of new materialist thinking and ethics, with particular reference to Rosi Braidotti's post humanist call for emancipated nomadic subjects to create sustainable futures in the anthropocene. I explore relations between this theory and SRT as a process of becoming through dance, uniquely placed to reposition and develop meaning, skills and knowledge within dance for the twenty-first century.
