Thus what I am describing represents a postmodern development of a genre as
opposed to the modernist evolution toward deconstruction described by previous

This theorisation is later deconstructed in For They Know Not What They Do. Ibid,
207. Note from an email ... I am aware that this remains within a space of
generalisation, but I am more interested in how the labour of dance training gets
