Learning to dance in the twenty-first century: Skinner Releasing Technique as technology of becoming, within a new materialist frame
This article considers Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) within a frame of new materialist thinking and ethics, with particular regard to Rosi Braidotti’s posthumanist call for emancipated nomadic subjects to create sustainable futures in the anthropocene. I will draw parallels between this theory and SRT as a process of becoming through dance, uniquely placed to reposition and develop meaning, skills and knowledge within dance for the twenty-first century.
