We are excited that Maresa von Stockert features in the new and third edition of ‘Fifty Contemporary Choreographers’ and that the image of her work SEASAW was chosen for the front cover of the book.

Edited by Jo Butterworth and Lorna Sanders, this international publication by Routledge is described asa unique and authoritative guide to the lives and work of prominent living contemporary choreographers… Representing a wide range of dance genres and styles, each entry locates the individual in the context of contemporary dance and explores their impact.Other choreographers featured in the book include William Forsythe, Sasha Waltz, Hofesh Shechter, Germaine Acogny, Meg Stuart, Alain Platel, Charlotte Vincent and Dimitris Papaioannou. The book will be published on the 23rd December 2020 and can be pre-ordered now.
