Hymn to Apollo the ancient world and the BALLETS RUSSES

In the ancient world, dance was used to express important truths about the human condition, and this significance can still be seen today in representations of dancers in ancient art. Sculpture, relief carving, vase painting, and other visual media offer a glimpse of the function of dance in antiquity. In the modern era, the Ballets Russes, a Paris-based collective established by Sergei Diaghilev (1872-1929), revolutionized dance and revived European and American interest in ballet, in part by drawing on notions of dance from the ancient world. Ballets Russes choreographers, designers, and collaborators looked to ancient culture for subjects and themes, and for a notion of dance as an expressive art form integrated with ritual. Hymn to Apollo explores the role of dance in ancient art and culture and how artists of the Ballets Russes returned to the past as a source for modern expression. Thematic essays and lavish illustrations present a fresh perspective on ancient artifacts, and watercolors, illustrations, sketchbooks, photographs, costumes, and other archival Ballets Russes material show how artists turned to the ancient world to create something new.

Il volume costituisce il catalogo della mostra dallo stesso titolo (New York, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, 6 marzo - 2 giugno 2019). Obiettivo, raggiunto, di mostra e catalogo è rispondere ai due interrogativi: “che cosa sappiamo della danza antica?” e “perché all’inizio del XX secolo gli artisti dell’avanguardia europea guardano all’antico?”. L’indagine usa 30 manufatti antichi—greci, romani e, in misura minore, dall’Egitto: vasi dipinti, statuette in bronzo e terracotta, rilievi, frammenti di statue di maggiori dimensioni, strumenti musicali—raffiguranti scene di danza o alla danza correlati, e li pone in dialogo con un’ampia selezione della documentazione relativa alle produzioni dei Ballets Russes—una compagnia di danza fondata da Sergei Diaghilev (1872-1929), con base a Parigi tra 1909 e 1929. Si tratta, in questo secondo caso, di 65 oggetti: soprattutto fotografie e bozzetti per scene e costumi, questi ultimi quasi interamente di mano di Léon Bakst (1866-1924).
