Abstract / Summary

Danscross (2009) took place in Beijing – a choreographic exchange project between Beijing Dance Academy and ResCen at Middlesex University. This writing documents the performance processes of two participating choreographers, Wang Mei (Chinese) and Kerry Nichols (UK). The emerging discussion about institutional contemporary dance training and its influences on choreographic process is set against a backdrop of global political/economic shifts of power, an assumption of which is that the West is in decline and the East is rising. Reflections on Danscross evoke a complexity of contradictions that confuse any possibilities of fixing that assumption within contemporary choreographic practice.
