Brolga publishes current research and critical thinking about dance, including:
- dance artists—cutting edge and emerging practices
- exploration of historical events, performances and people
- discussions on dance and education
- academic papers about philosophy, composition, criticism, music and costume for dance
- reviews of recent dance publications.
Brolga connects the present with a past whose priorities were altogether different. It reminds us—often in poignant detail—of the achievements of people like Laurel Martyn, Gertrud Bodenweiser, Margaret Barr, Edouard Borovansky, and a host of others whose creativity and vision helped carry forward Australian dance.
Its contributing authors have diverse backgrounds and interests and represent a broad spectrum of the dance community. Papers may be peer reviewed on request. Brolga has a B rating on the ERA journals list released by Deakin University, 2008.
