Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the moving story of the development of modern dance as told by the visionary artists who created it. The powerful words of Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Ruth St. Denis, and twenty nine other modern dance artists come to life in these original essays.

Book News Annotation:

Modern dance continues its 75-year-old legacy of innovation in integrating meaning and movement--reflected here through background narrative, statements by and historic photographs of its originators. The forerunners are represented (e.g. Duncan, Shawn), as well as the four pioneers (Graham, Humphrey, Weidman, and Holm); the second generation (Cunningham, Ailey); new rebels (Pilobolus, Tharp); and diverse post-modern visions. Includes a videography. Supplants the 1979 edition. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The essential thinking of the most prominent exponents of modern dance. A Dance Book Club selection.

Description:
