some things about dance

In 2013 I started writing a series of short ideas about dance and choreography. I had the idea that perhaps I could put together a small book for people interested in thinking about the nature of contemporary dance practices. The project stalled for a while (as they do) but the book – called Some Things About Dance – is now available as a Pay What You Want digital download (PDF, ePuB or mobi). It features a collection of original illustrations by Hamish MacPherson.
