Jooss' Green Table & Bruce's Swanson [sic]
Kurt Joss' The Green Table & Christopher Bruce's Swansong
Green table (Choreographic work : Jooss)
Swansong (Choreographic work : Bruce)
"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
