From the mid-1990s onwards, the art historian and critic Laurence Louppe has identified a renewal of dance, where the works manifest “the determination of choreographic artists to break with aesthetic conventions, with the norms that were imposed on them by tradition, laziness, or programming”. In the extension of her previous work, The Poetics of Contemporary Dance, the author, who specializes in the aesthetics of dance and the visual arts, gives us an idea of the nature of these different choreographic approaches.
