This book is the first detailed critical examination of the role and significance of movement within contemporary theatre performance and performance for digital capture. It includes case studies based on interviews with leading practitioners, and examines movement practice within mainstream theatre, physical theatre and circus, intercultural theatre, and movement direction for films/motion capture. At the heart of this book is an analysis of the social and cultural implications of movement practice within these fields, including an investigation of the effects of cultural diversity, gender and disability within this increasingly important area of practice.
