Les grands chorégraphes du XXe siècleSold by Opéra National de Paris Topics
DescriptionTwo years after the publication of the Big Stars of the XXth century, the great dance critic Gérard Mannoni devotes himself to the great choreographers, of whom he delivers here around fifty portraits, classified in chronological order. Dance is a story of smugglers. After the "smooth" transmissions of the 19th century, the 20th appears as a kind of permanent fireworks which nourishes creation and always invents new steps, new forms, a new relationship with sound, costume, scenic space, to the public, to the light, seeking to see how far we can exploit the human body. The great choreographers of this book are the true architects of this history, which is recounted here in a particularly vivid way.
