In Situ: Responding to Space, Place, People and Time

Dance can be anywhere, in a studio, on screen, in the streets, on a stage; dance can bring communities together, share lived experiences beyond barriers and express moments of joy. Dance can be a powerful tool for change. This publication brings together dance artists, practitioners and educators, rooted in the African and African Caribbean Diaspora, to share ideas and research as a part of a collective questioning exploring In Situ: Responding to Space, Place, People and Time.
