Description

Europe Dancing examines the dance cultures and movements which have developed in Europe since the Second World War. Nine countries are represented in this unique collaboration between European dance scholars. The contributors chart the post-war development of the concept of European identity for dance, show how this relatively young art form has grown, and discuss the outside influences which have shaped it. This comprehensive book explores: * all genres of dance in both professional and amateur contexts * questions of identity within individual countries, within Europe, and in relation to the USA * the East/West cultural division * the development of state subsidy for dance * the rise of contemporary dance as an 'alternative' genre * the implications for dance of political, economic and social change. Useful historical charts are included to trace significant dance and political events throughout the twentieth century in each country. Never before has this information been gathered together in one place. This book is essential reading for everyone interested in dance and its growth and development in recent years. Rudi Laermans, Pascal Gielen, Georgiana Gore, Laurence Louppe, Wilfride Piollet, Claudia Jeschke, Gabi Vettermann, Livia Fuchs, Giannandrea Poesio, Anna Aalten, Mirjam van der Linden, Nelida Mones, Ma
