Who authors and who owns (the) dance? This article explores those questions within the context of two case studies: one a recasting of Love Games, and the other called The Two Fridas. Both feature the choreographer and dance artist Caroline Bowditch. In our contribution we seek not only to address the legal questions, but also to confront concerns around the legacy of the Unlimited Cultural Olympiad Programme, and to challenge the reader in relation to any prejudices that may exist in relation to this genre.
