Myra Beltran and the Aesthetics of an Independent Filipina Woman Dancing
Corpus, Rina Angela P.
Research in Dance Education, v9 n1 p21-37 Mar 2008
This essay narrates the biography and dance aesthetics of Myra Beltran, a pioneering, independent and contemporary woman dance artist in the Philippines. Featured here are the history, alternative aesthetics, philosophy, and influences of Myra Beltran's works. It comes from the point of view of an author who is also a woman, dancer, and writer viewing the works of another woman dance artist. It is contextualized within the Philippine contemporary dance world and the exigencies of living as a dance artist within this context. The essay, informed by feminist critical theories and histories, is a form of feminist intervention in the field of dance, thus engaging the cross-disciplinary possibilities between dance and women's studies. (Contains 11 notes.)
