Описание: The most comprehensive, beautiful book ever to be published on dance in America. "We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life. This is the function of the American dance." Groundbreaking choreographer Martha Graham deeply understood the power and complexity of dance--particularly as it evolved in her home country. "American Dance," by critic and journalist Margaret Fuhrer, traces that richly complex evolution. From Native American dance rituals to dance in the digital age, "American Dance "explores centuries of innovation, of individual genius and collaborative exploration. Some of its stories--such as Fred Astaire dancing on the ceiling or Alvin Ailey founding the trailblazing company that bears his name--will be familiar to anyone who loves dance. Others are rarely told, yet no less riveting. The complex origins of tap, for instance, or the Puritan outrage against "profane and promiscuous dancing" during the early years of the United States, are as full of mystery and humor as Graham describes. These various developments have never before been presented in a single book, making "American Dance "the most comprehensive work on the subject to date. Breakdancing, musical-theater dance, disco, ballet, jazz, ballroom, modern, hula, the Charleston, the Texas two-step, swing--these are just some of the forms celebrated in this riveting volume." "Hundreds of photographs accompany the text, making "American Dance "as visually captivating as the works it depicts.

Описание: Usually portrayed as a period dominated by the extraordinary achievements of great men, Margaret L. King recasts the Renaissance as a more complex cultural movement rooted in a unique urban society that was itself the product of many factors and interactions, such as commerce, papal and imperial ambitions, artistic patronage, scientific discovery, aristocratic and popular violence, legal precedents, peasant migrations, famine, plague, invasion and other social factors. Together with literary and artistic achievements, therefore, today's Renaissance history includes the study of power, wealth, gender, class, honour, shame, ritual and other categories of historical investigation opened up in recent years. In this text, Professor King traces the diffusion of the Renaissance from Italy to the rest of Europe,
