Wulff - Chapter 04
The Link to the Land
chapter highlights the importance of land in the production of Ireland
as a place and a plurality of places in dance. As has already become
clear, the meaning of place in Ireland is highly charged: there is a
lot of negotiation over national identity, politics and the role of
religion in relation to place. The controversy over dancing at the
crossroads, which I begin this book with, is an example par excellence.
