With a companion website that includes short online film episodes, this book proposes expansive ways of deconstructing and re-constituting sexuality and gender and thus more embodied and ethical ways of 'doing' life, and offers an understanding and critique of embodiment through an integration of performance, psychotherapy and feminist philosophy.
BEATRICE ALLEGRANTIis a choreographer (for dance theatre and film), clinical practitioner (in the UK NHS in adult mental health, special needs schools and in private practice) and is a researcher and convener on the Dance Movement Psychotherapy MA at University of Roehampton, UK. A key focus of her work is on embodiment or how we can 'be in' and develop our relationship with our bodies through integrating dance movement, psychosocial and biological processes and understandings of human agency.
