Abstract / Description of output

This chapter looks at the interface between modernist experiments in dance and modernist experiments in writing. It examines these intricate relationships between textuality, visuality and embodiment as an aspect of modernist ekphrasis through close readings of specific instances of events that bring together literary/textual and dance / performance modernism (Isadora Duncan, Ballet Russes, Yeats, Eliot).
