Abstract:

"Kurt Jooss' The Green Table is one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century dance. Its message of the futile, relentless tragedy of war is universal in its humanitarian appearl. This studio recording...endeavors to reconstruct his work as faithfully as possible.The sets and customues follow the designs created by Hein Heckroth for the original 1932 production."--container

"Christopher Bruce's reputation as one of Britain's outstanding dancer/choreographers is based partly on his mix of classical and modern idioms and partly on his commitment to socially conscious themes. Swansong was created by Bruce for the English National Ballet and was received with great critical acclaim when it was first performed in London. This recording recreates the production in studio, using the same bare setting, with a single chair. The dance exposes two guards who taunt, brutalize and finally kill, their victim, a prisoner in an unnamed political trap."--container
