Abstract

Anarchic Dance consists of a book and DVD-ROM, and is a visual and textual record of the work of Aggiss and Cowie. Assembled is a broad range of writers: Donald Hutera, Dr. Carol Brown, Deborah Levy, Dr. Marion Kant, Dr/Prof. Valerie Briginshaw, Claudia Kappenberg, Ian Bramley, Prof. Sondra Fraleigh, Dr. Sherril Dodds, who contribute to this publication using their specialist knowledge to create a wider understanding, interpretation and context of the processes, practices and performances of Aggiss and Cowie. This book is illustrated with a series of black and white, and colour photographs. The included DVD-ROM features extracts from the live and screen work. As much as Aggiss and Cowie’s practice is hybrid, maverick and indefinable, the various theories presented are equally challenging, lively and fresh. Each essay analyses specific performances, discussing the subject matter and its execution using for example feminist philosophy, post structuralist discourse, historical analysis of Expressionist and Grotesque Dance, film theory, creative prose and conversation. The book’s insights provide a comprehensive investigation into their collaborative partnership and demonstrate a range of exciting approaches through which dance performance can be critically engaged.
