In this article, Emily Coates discusses the work of three choreographers—Opiyo Okach, Yasmeen Godder, and Yvonne Rainer—whose work was shown at Yale University's Festival of International Dance in 2008. She examines their work from both global and local perspectives, suggesting various ways in which gesture, choreography, and dance knowledge circulates by physical exchange among dancers performing internationally. She describes these choreographers' work as joining tradition with innovation toward an integrated, globalized world.
