Through the concept of --social choreography-- Andrew Hewitt demonstrates how choreography has served not only as metaphor for modernity but also as a structuring blueprint for thinking about and shaping modern social organization. Bringing dance history and critical theory together, he demonstrates how ideology needs to be understood as something embodied and practiced, not just as an abstract form of consciousness. Linking dance and the aesthetics of everyday movement --such as walking, stumbling, and laughter-- to historical ideals of social order, he provides a powerful exposition of Marxist debates about the relation of ideology and aesthetics.
