Rosemary Butcher: choreography/collisions/collaborations

Melrose, Susan and Butcher, Rosemary (2005) Rosemary Butcher: choreography/collisions/collaborations. Performing Arts . Middlesex University Press, Hendon, London. ISBN 1904750478. [Book]


Monograph, co-edited with Rosemary Butcher; Middlesex University Press, October 2005. The work also includes a chapter by Melrose: 'Always Innovate', pp.170-203. The editorial collaboration enabled the pursuit of wholly separate but complementary roles in this publication: the shared aim was to realise a visually and intellectually distinctive volume with an orientation to a wide audience, by combining independently-commissioned design features focused on the history of choreographic/visual arts practices of a signature practitioner, with more conventional 'performance writing' from a range of writers (including Susan Leigh Foster and Janet Lansdale, and visual artist Robert Ayers), exploring both 'academic' and more popular registers. The work asks how one might best 'document' the practices of a major contemporary practitioner in such a way as to enable readers to move between what are often disjoined textual registers, while retaining the strongest emphasis possible on the expert practitioner's work in choreography and the visual arts.
