Disremembered Cabaret Histories

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter


In the 1970s & 1980s, many British dancers, including myself and my peers, worked abroad, taking performing jobs as a means of acquiring an Equity card, for work security and a regular wage, and/or to see the world. This period of recent dance history has yet to be documented and is the focus of my doctoral research. Using autoethnography to recall my life working in a small touring cabaret dance company in Italy, I resist challenge and queer the patriarchal discourse of conventional academic narratives. My method identifies an original approach to academic writing that draws on and celebrates cabaret, to create a doctoral thesis for the twenty-first century.
