Choreography and Narrative by Susan Leigh Foster

Book Description

"Undoubtedly, Choreography and Narrative is an important contribution to dance history research." -Nineteenth-Century French Studies "This work is a landmark in the field and belongs in all libraries serving undergraduate, graduate, and faculty researchers in dance." -Choice "Invents a new method for writing the history of performance: Foster has found an innovative way of appealing directly to the kinesthetic imagination of her readers, evoking the elusive styles of the pieces she reconstructs." -Joseph Roach "An impressive work of scholarship, this elegantly staged study...uses the concept of a culturally constructed, historically specific body to cut across disciplinary boundaries..." -Library Journal Foster examines the development of ballet, and conceptions of the dancing body, as ballet separated from opera and emerged as an autonomous art form during the turbulence of 18th-century French society and history.

Books By Author Susan Leigh Foster

Choreographing Empathy by Susan Leigh Foster Choreographing Empathy, Paperback (November 2010)

What do we feel when we watch dancing? Do we 'dance along' inwardly? Do we sense what the dancer's body is feeling? If we do, how do these responses influence how we experience dancing and how we derive significance from it? This book challenges the idea of a direct psychphysical connection between the body of a dancer and that of their observer.

Worlding Dance by Susan Leigh Foster Worlding Dance, Hardback (June 2009)

What world has been constructed for dancing through the use of the term 'world dance'? What kinds of worlds do we as scholars create for a given dance when we undertake to describe and analyze it? This book endeavours to make new epistemological space for the analysis of the world's dance by offering a variety of new analytic approaches.

Corporealities by Susan Leigh Foster Corporealities, Hardback (November 1995)

A ground-breaking collection of essays that bring dance into the cultural studies mainstream, exploring the many ways we use our bodies as substantial, vital constituents of cultural reality.
