This collection of essays focuses how dance and movement engage and enact political questions around agency, mobility, pedagogy, and resistance. Committed to crossing disciplinary boundaries, Power Moves looks to movement knowledge for its radical insights and critical forms of public intervention and pedagogy.

The writers of this collection examine cultural and social patterns in action in the studio, on the stage, and from the street, and in doing so give voice to fresh perspectives from Canadian dance and performance studies on social, political, and cultural values in the twenty-first century. Contributors include Evadne Kelly, Karyn Recollet and Emily Johnson, Angélique Willkie, Christine Mazumdar, Natalie Alvarez, Gabe Levine, and Mary Fogarty, with an introduction and individual contributions from editors Seika Boye and MJ Thompson.
