Elise Archias, “The Concrete Body”
“The Concrete Body” advances the new standard for dance scholarship. Published by Yale University Press, Elise Archias’ book traces the methods by which visuality began seeping into and transmuting dance in our contemporary era through some of its most influential practitioners. In doing so, dance theorist and writer Archias has begun to make the case to situate herself among the ranks of Andre Lepecki and Sally Banes.
