Defiant Daughters Dancing (2007)

"Corpus' book takes on a feminist perspective and challenges the manner in which dance history has been written to exclude women as productive agents of the art form. Foregrounding the work of three independent women dancers - Myra Beltran, Kristin Jackson, and Agnes Locsin - Corpus enacts 'the complicated turn of the body against the gravity of its tradition." (from the Foreword by Patrick Flores)

Dance and other slippages (2014)

Dance and Other Slippages: Critical Narratives on Women, Dance, and Art is a collection of essays by Rina Angela Corpus about works, spaces, and experiences of dancers and artists in the Philippines. It tackles questions in reading dance, art, and gender and looks into the complex entanglement of aesthetics, sexual politics, and material and economic realities that inform the works and practice of a number of Philippine women choreographers and dancers. It also contributes to the broader feminist theoretical discourse on spatial theory and analysis."

Rina Angela Corpus’s collection of essays, 'Dance and Other Slippages: Critical Narratives on Women, Dance, and Art,' is a satisfying and complex read. Corpus writes about works, spaces, and experiences of dancers and artists in the Philippines. Her subjects are made vivid through evocative description and attention to individual perspective. Her intersectional analyses explore questions of representation and agency in ways specific to the communities and artists she studies. What “slipped and transformed” in my reading of this work was my understanding of contemporary dance practices, their global interconnections, heritages, and potential meanings. 

— Dr. Ann Dils, Professor and Chair, Department of Dance, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
