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.

Brian Diettrich is Senior Lecturer in Ethnomusicology at Victoria University of Wellington. A specialist in Oceania, his work has appeared in numerous publications about music and culture, including Ethnomusicology, Yearbook for Traditional Music, and the Journal of Pacific History.
