Performance Journal


Started in 1990, the Movement Research Performance Journal has focused on artists’ of-the-moment concerns, with past topics including gender, environments, identity, technology, activism, dance writing and, most recently, an exploration of how contemporary dance negotiates with the larger culture, via a magazine format.
