Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300093667, Hardcover)

This book chronicles 100 years of dramatic developments in ballet, modern and experimental dance for stage and screen in Europe and North America. The volume encompasses the history of theatrical dance from 1900 through to 2000. Beginning with turn-of-the-century dancer-choreographers like Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Michel Fokine and a bit later Vaslav Nijinsky, and proceeding through the profusion of dance styles performed at the beginning of the 21st century, the book provides a view of dance in performance as it changed and grew in the 20th century. Nancy Reynolds and Malcolm McCormick set dance in broader cultural and historical contexts, examine specific dance works and explore the contributions of outstanding choreographers, performers, visual artists, impresarios, composers, critics and other figures. They discuss the breakaway barefoot dance of the early 1900s and demonstrate its links with later forms and styles. With detail, illustrations and wide-ranging insights, this volume is a guide to the transformations in the dance scene of the 20th century.

"No Fixed Points surveys a century of dramatic developments in ballet, modern dance, and avant-garde dance for stage and screen in Europe and North America. It also looks at such popular forms as show dancing, tap, and jazz. Magisterial in scope, this history encompasses in depth a unified narrative of dance as an art form from 1900 through 2000, beginning with such early innovators as Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, and Vaslav Nijinsky and proceeding through the profusion of choreographic styles that evolved over the next hundred years."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
