Moving Together by Rudi Laermans examines contemporary dance from both a practical and a theoretical perspective, with interactions between the two. The author analyses three important tendencies in contemporary dance: pure dance, dance theatre, and (self-)reflexive dance. He proposes a (theoretical) conceptual framework and through extensive dialogues with choreographers he investigates how artistic cooperation results in dance.
