Abstract [en]

Dance criticism is shaped by society, politics, economics, gender, and it is shaped by race. The tradition of whiteness constructs the texts written about black dancers performing in a Swedish context. In the reviews from 1950-1970 that is studied in this paper, there is a constant look at "the Other" performing and words like primitive, exotic and original are dominating the outcome. The papers studied are Dagens Nyheter, Svenska Dagbladet and Expressen.
