Description

Choreographer, teacher and former artistic producer of the Canada Dance Festival Brian Webb encourages everyone in the dance community to speak about dance and the dance experience in this bilingual offering of eight essays on contemporary dance in Canada. "There is a real need for better dance literacy both within the dance community and the broader community," he says. "With these books we hope to provide a context for the reading and appreciation of contemporary dance in contemporary society."

About the Author
Brian Webb is the artistic director of the Brian Webb Dance Company in Edmonton, Alberta. He has served as artistic producer of the Canadian Dance Festival as well as chair of the dance program at Grant MacEwan College until its closure in 2005. He centres his practice in these three areas through the act of dancing. His creations are interdisciplinary in nature, combining movement and written and visual texts in a contemporary telling of the body. He believes that art emerges from the community, for the community and is consequently interested in how contemporary dance places itself within Canadian culture.
