The radical reworking of heritage to make it new is a compelling theme for many of today's choreographers and the reconstruction of lost work has burgeoned into a major enterprise. These Proceedings reflect the breadth of participants in the Roehampton conference: choreographers, scholars, dancers, rehearsal directors, critics, notators, as well as representatives from the other arts, all engaged in one of the most important artistic debates of our times.
