9780822335146 - Social choreography: ideology as performance in dance and ev eryday movement

Artikelomschrijving

Social Choreography links dance and the aesthetics of everyday movement to ideas about social order. By examining a continuum of bodily motions--from walking, stumbling, and laughter to more formal dance movements--Andrew Hewitt demonstrates how choreography has served not only as metaphor for modernity but also as a structuring blueprint for thinking about and shaping modern social organization. Bringing dance history and critical theory together, he argues that ideology needs to be understood as something embodied and practiced, not just as an abstract from of consciousness. In the process, he provides a powerful exposition of Marxist debates about the relation of ideology and aesthetics and a demonstration of how theoretically engaging with bodies in motion can reorient those debates. Hewitt focuses on the period between the mid-nineteenth century and the early twentieth and considers dance performers and social theorists in Germany, Britain, France, and the United States.
