Materiality, immateriality and the dancing body; the challenge of the inter in the preservation of intangible cultural heritage

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Since the turn of the millennium we have witnessed the beginnings of a growing number of projects that bring fresh attention to questions surrounding the documentation and dissemination of the processes and products of dance and wider performance practices. New kinds of digital inscriptions and tools for capturing and rendering movement are now available to access and study dance in innovative ways, raising questions about authorship and the extent to which dance is an evolving, mutable process mediated via many different encounters.
