Dance, Disability and Law: InVisible Difference

Sarah Whatley, Charlotte Waelde, Shawn HE Harmon, Abbe Elizabeth Lockhart Brown, Karen Wood, Hetty Blades

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This collection is the first book to focus on the intersection of dance, disability, and the law. Bringing together a range of writers from different disciplines, it considers the question of how we value, validate, and speak about diversity in performance practice, with a specific focus on the experience of differently-abled dance artists within the changing world of the arts in the United Kingdom. Contributors address the legal frameworks that support or inhibit the work of disabled dancers and explore factors that affect their full participation, including those related to policy, arts funding, dance criticism, and audience reception
