Case studies cover site-specific and multimedia performance, and selected productions from the National Theatre of Scotland and the Globe Theatre.

This co-authored book aims to articulate international approaches to making, performing and theorizing site-based dance. Intended for artists, scholars, and students, the approaches discussed are informed by interdisciplinary engagements with socio-cultural, political, economic and ecological perspectives. Site-based dance performance and sited movement explorations implicate dance makers, performers and audience members in a number of dialogical processes between body, site and environment. This volume draws on perspectives from three practitioner-academics based in three distinct world regions (Europe, North America and Oceania/ Pacific). The authors explore a range of practices that engage with socio-cultural, political, ecological and economic discourses, and demonstrate how these discourses both frame and inform processes of site-dance making and shape the way in which such interventions are conceived and evaluated.
