Dance and the Body Politic in Northern Greece (Princeton Modern Greek Studies)

by JaneK.Cowan (Author)

Synopsis

Valued for their sensual and social intensity, Greek dance-events are often also problematical for participants, giving rise to struggles over position, prestige, and reputation. This book explores how the politics of gender is articulated through the body at these culturally central celebrations in a class-divided northern Greek town.
