ancer’s journey into Palestine’s past and present. Through historical archives, the memories of dancers of yesteryear and into today’s vibrant performing arts scene, Nicholas Rowe shows how dance has acted as a barometer of social change, a forum for debate and a means of expressing forbidden ideas.

Sumptuously illustrated, the author provides a unique, rare and compelling cultural history of dance in Palestine.
