- Dance dramaturgy: structures, relationships, contexts
- Choreographic environments
- Cultural and intercultural contexts
- Challenging aesthetics

Including 23 new chapters and 10 updated ones, Contemporary Choreography captures the essence and progress of choreography in the twenty-first century, supporting and encouraging rigorous thinking and research for future generations of dance practitioners and scholars.
