>Movement Manifesto, Part 2 of 2Why We Dance: A Philosophy of Bodily Becoming (Columbia University Press, 2015)

Kimerer LaMothe is a dancer, philosopher, and independent scholar of religion.

"I have been writing this book for years—writing toward it, writing around it, writing underneath and beside it.

For our humanity.
