Raising Dust: A Cultural History of Dance in Palestine

Raising Dust: A Cultural History of Dance in Palestine

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,548|Likes:
Published by I.B.Tauris
An extract from Nicholas Rowe's Raising Dust:

Raising Dust traces one dancer's journey into Palestine's past and present. Through historical archives, the memories of dancers of yesteryear and into today's vibrant performing arts scene, Nicholas Rowe shows how dance has acted as a barometer of social change, a forum for debate and a means of expressing forbidden ideas. Far from apolitical, this most physical of art forms has often defined the political mood of the day. Sumptuously illustrated, the author provides a unique, rare and compelling cultural history of dance in Palestine.
