Terpsichore in Sneakers : Post-Modern Dance

description

Critical theory by Sally Banes on post modernist dance in the early 1960's with photographs by Robert Alexander. "'Terpsichore in Sneakers' is the first full-scale discussion of the artists who have made post-modern dance today's pre-eminent choreographic movement. Sally Banes traces post-modernism's origins in the work of Cunningham and Ann Halprin, its explosion in the Judson Dance Theater of the early '60s, and its relationship to other avant-garde movements in the arts during th 1960s and 70s including Happenings, pop and minimal art and related developments in the visual arts, theater and literature." -- taken from jacket cover. Individual chapters are devoted to Simone Forti, Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton, Trisha Brown, David Gordon, Deborah Hay, Lucinda Childs, Douglas Dunn, Meredith Monk, Kenneth King and The Grand Union. Includes photographs, chronology and a selected bibliography.
