520 8  Until the 1930s no woman could perform in public and 
       retain respectability in India. Professional female 
       performers were courtesans and dancing girls who lived 
       beyond the confines of marriage, but were often powerful 
       figures in social and cultural life. In her study, Anna 
       Morcom investigates the emergence of illicit worlds of 
       dance in the shadow of India's official performing arts. 
       She explores over a century of marginalisation of 
       courtesans, dancing girls, bar girls and transgender 
       performers, and describes their lives as they struggle 
       with stigmatisation, derision and loss of livelihood.
