My primary research focus is contemporary Dance in South Africa and the nexus it offers for reimagining of notions of Other and Body. It is located in Dance and Performance Studies: Disability arts, Dance Pedagogy, Afro-contemporary Dance, Dance History, Modern/Contemporary Dance, Choreographic Studies and Dance Criticism. Through Post-colonial and phenomenological readings, I continue to investigate subfields of Dance discourse such as ballet, children?s dance theatre, dance as social healing, and performativity of the archive.
