Interview with Dr Helena Hammond (Senior Lecturer in Dance, University of Roehampton) following a guest lecture for the Centre for the Philosophy of History at St Mary's University, Twickenham. Entitled 'Dance as Historical Discourse: Forsythe, Foucault, Brecht, and the BBC', the seminar was an extension of a paper that Dr Hammond wrote of the same name, which examines the Royal Ballet performance of William Forsthe's Steptext. Hammond proposes that, "the performance and televisual adaptation of Steptext as a portal into new and arguably more self-reflexive modes of reading post-war British lyric theatre as subjugated, or effective, history."
