The Modern Danse comes from an enjoyment of novels of the 18th and 19th centuries – in this case, novels by women authors. I’m interested in the way the literary narrative forms of the time: the romance, gothic, epistolary, pastoral, coming of age and drawing room dramas offer insights into attitudes and customs in Western societies of the period and in how these might operate as a counter-point for reflections on circumstances in the present day.
