About the Author

Nicholas Rowe graduated from the Australian Ballet School and subsequently worked as a choreographer and dancer with The Australian Ballet, The Sydney Dance Company, The Finnish National Ballet, Ballet Philippines, The West Australian Ballet, The Royal New Zealand Ballet, Modern Dance Turkey and Nomad Dance Theatre. In 2000 he moved to the West Bank city of Ramallah and spent the next eight years working with local dance collectives and arts institutions on dance performance and education projects in cities, villages and refugee camps across the West Bank and Gaza Strip. He completed his PhD on Palestinian dance through the London Contemporary Dance School. He is the author of Art, During Siege: Performing Arts Workshops in Traumatised Communities and his articles have appeared in Dance Research Journal, Research in Dance Education, Dance Europe, The Dancing Times, Dance Australia, the Jerusalem Times and This Week in Palestine. He is currently an Associate Dean at the National Institute of Creative Arts and Industries, University of Auckland.


""Dancer/choreographer-turned-scholar, Rowe writes in a manner that is at once personal and academic...Situating this study at the crossroads of social, historical, religious, and ethnic issues, Rowe demonstrates that dance, in this case Palestinian dance, is inherently political. A solid resourse for students of dance and Middle Eastern history and culture.""--Choice ""Delightfully written, flavoured as it is with autobiographical account and insightful commentary...this pleasantly designed and well produced book makes a powerfully fresh innovative contribution"" -- Douglas Pratt, Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations
