'The Crafted Body': Thoughts on Dancing, Viewing and Remembering

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    In this chapter, I draw on her choreographic practice-as-research project in the Ashmolean Museum (UK) to propose the ways in which live dance in the archaeology museum interrogates received notions of how we view and remember history. The choreographic practice develops from feminist classical scholarship focussing on the gaze, and on the gaze’s relationship to mobility and stillness. It posits ‘stillness-that-is-not-quite stillness’ as a strategy that allows dance to step out of the linear temporality of representation and into a different economy of time and presence.
