Watching Weimar Dance

Kate Elswit

Oxford Studies in Dance Theory

  • Brings insights from Dance, Theatre, and Performance Studies to Weimar Studies and vice versa to develop a culturally-situated model of watching
  • Considers the transnational connections and afterlives of Weimar-era dance, including historicizing the post-World War II usage of Ausdruckstanz
  • Offers new methods for dance scholarship to shape cultural history through, rather than despite, the instabilities of performance
  • Based on a collection of rare archival materials, from published cartoons and annotated 1920s scrapbooks to legal case files from a copyright suit
