Here's a paper shared by Luke Bradley. It will remain available at the section for dance papers, which you can reach through the navbar at the left.
The main gist of the article is that I position myself as an 'outsider' on the subject at hand, and as such, have yet to lose perspective on things, like what inevitably occurs when one becomes too immersed in the world of any subject, especially a rather niche one such as I have discussed in the piece. Having no background in the art and finding things out for myself may have limited the extent of my knowledge, but this is offset by creating an idiosyncratic 'taste' and a relatively layman's view on the discipline, which I hope might provide some intriguing insights. Obviously, the underlying point of the piece is to introduce people to dance pieces that they may enjoy, but for the more learned fan of dance I have also tried to include parts on music, aesthetics and even tiny lapses into general philosophy. (I am much more knowledgable about music so often rely on that as a way to approach analysis.)
I've split the text into 3 sections using the Chinese characters 過去, 現在 and 未来 as markers (handy for Cmd + F searching). The first section is a brief bio and explanation of my relationship with dance, the second section is a list of 100 or so of my favourite contemporary works, with 'annotations' and video links (although some may be dead by now, having been inserted over 2 months ago, and if you're using a PC or MS Word they may not appear at all as I used TextEdit to write it and sometimes the links don't transfer across when read), with a special highlighting of a particular butō troupe, and the final section is an essay-cum-structured ramble on how to 'improve' dance and the dance industry (if you actually read this part, it's nowhere near as pretentious and egotistical as that sounds, hence the quotation marks around 'improve', and may be of the most interest to someone such as yourself, whether that's for positive or negative reasons I couldn't hazard a guess). As a whole, it may be a tad UK-centric, especially the references to football and rugby league, but hopefully most of it makes sense to you, and if not it only adds to the idiosyncratic and eccentric persona, reinforcing the basis for the piece.
