Please see below for highlights of the praise this book has been receiving:

“Post-Apartheid Dance: Many Bodies Many Voices Many Stories is the first – and long overdue – volume to grapple with the legacies of apartheid in dance. The voices gathered by editor Sharon Friedman address a multitude of issues – from the contentious identity embedded in the word ‘African’ to questions of aesthetic choice, the role of the European exotic gaze, the assimilation of Euro-American forms, and the goal of social transformation. With essays by nearly a dozen representatives of today’s South African dance world, this exciting volume celebrates the diversity of that world while spotlighting its continuing quest for full artistic enfranchisement.”

– Professor Lynn Garafola, Barnard College, New York, USA

“Post-Apartheid Dance: Many Bodies Many Voices Many Stories offers an excellent navigation of the complex landscape of dance in South Africa. These essays provide an invaluable contribution to dance studies, juxtaposing embodied experiences with critical reflections, which shift perspectives of dance practices in a global context.”

– Professor Christy Adair, York St John University, UK
