The Hybrid and the Dancing Body: a study of the Anglo-Saxon contemporary stage

Federica Fratagnoli About the author


Taking as starting point the experience of the artists of the Indian diaspora in England, the article suggests rethinking the role and the meaning of the term hybrid in the field of dance and of contemporary creation. Applied without distinction to any kind of multicultural artistic creation, this term conveys a plurality of senses, sometimes contradictory. Notions of contemporary biology will supply the theoretical tools for an analysis of the hybrid processes of creation, allowing a diversified reading of experiences often perceived as homogeneous.
