CRITICAL STAGES/SCÈNES CRITIQUES
SHALL WE DANCE?
Number 13 of Critical Stages (due June 2016) will focus on dance, a field of performing arts that has deeply influenced dramatic theatre as well during the last decades of the 20th century. What is interesting and worthwhile examining is that although dance and performance tend to take more space in contemporary theatre festivals, critics continue to separate theatre criticism from dance criticism. Critical Stages, trying to widen its scope of inquiry, invites papers which reflect, in a fresh and inviting way, on contemporary dance trends and dance criticism. Also papers with more theoretical concerns like the body as site for negotiating artistic and sociocultural issues or the body as dispositive of gender issues, are most welcome.
