MOVING TOGETHER: THEORIZING AND MAKING CONTEMPORARY DANCE. Rudi Laermans. Valiz, Amsterdam, 2015. Antennae, 18. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 430 pp. 21 x 14 cm. ISBN 9789078088523 In English.
Publisher's description: Published in Valiz's new Antennae series devoted to new research in art, photography, architecture and design, Moving Together examines contemporary dance from both a practical and theoretical perspective. The author, Professor Rudi Laermans, analyzes three tendencies: pure dance, dance theater and (self-) reflexive dance. He proposes a theoretical framework for understanding how artistic cooperation figures into the creation of dance. Boasting a great design by the maverick Dutch studio Metahaven, Moving Together includes dialogues with some of the most influential names in contemporary dance spanning several generations: Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, founder of the cutting-edge dance company Rosas; Jerome Bel, the controversial and experimental French choreographer; William Forsythe, known internationally for his work with Ballett Frankfurt (1984-2004) and The Forsythe Company (2005-present); as well as many others dance innovators.
