Contemporary dance and disability
(No location given)
I am delighted to say that your site has been very helpful so far, but I think I really need to ask for your help at this point.
I am a student at the Glasgow school of art and I am writing an extended essay on contemporary dance and disability. I am particularly interested in the works of Alain Platel and using them as resources, my analysis explores the ethical and communicational framework of such performances. I am also thinking of including a comparison between Platel’s dance company and other dance companies that are constituted from disabled dancers and the critical judgment of the audience.
So I would like to request for any resources that you are aware of, for example I am having some hard time locating dance companies which are made of disabled people and more information on the insertion and expression of disability at this exclusive community. I also feel hat I should be more analytical on my sources but I haven’t found good description of the performances ( dance is hard to describe with words to someone; maybe that is why it is danced after all). This writing could go on for ever. Any advice or source or idea would be highly appreciated. Forgive my bad sentence structure. I would be waiting news from you. Thank you in advance.
