Focusing on visual approaches to performance in global cultural contexts, Perspectives in Motion explores the work of Adrienne L. Kaeppler, a pioneering researcher who has made a number of interdisciplinary contributions over five decades to dance and performance studies. Through a diverse range of case studies from Oceania, Asia, and Europe, and interdisciplinary approaches, this edited collection offers new critical and ethnographic frameworks for understanding and experiencing practices of music and dance across the globe.

Kendra Stepputat is Assistant Professor in Ethnomusicology at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Graz. Her most recent books include the co-edited Choreomusicology (special edition, world of music [new series], forthcoming), and the co-edited volume Sounding the Dance, Moving the Music: Choreomusicological Perspectives on Performing Arts in Maritime Southeast Asia (2016, Routledge).

Brian Diettrich is Senior Lecturer in Ethnomusicology at Victoria University of Wellington. He is a co-author of Music in Pacific Island Cultures: Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture (2011, Oxford University Press), and his work has appeared in numerous publications including Yearbook for Traditional Music, The Galpin Society Journal, and Ethnomusicology.
