a wondering in three parts

Invisible Difference: Dance, Disability and Law was published in May 2018.

The first book to focus on the intersection of dance, disability, and the law. Bringing together a range of writers from different disciplines - including a chapter of poetic provocation from Luke entitled A Wondering in Three Parts - it considers the question of how we value, validate, and speak about diversity in performance practice, with a specific focus on the experience of differently-abled dance artists within the changing world of the arts in the United Kingdom.  Contributors address the legal frameworks that support or inhibit the work of disabled dancers and explore factors that affect their full participation, including those related to policy, arts funding, dance criticism, and audience reception.

The publication is one of the outcomes of the Invisible Difference Project for which Luke was an advisor.
