schema:description"Routledge Performance Practitioners is a series of introductory guides to the key theater-makers of the last century. Each volume explains the background to and the work of one of the major influences on twentieth- and twenty-first century performance. A dancer, teacher, and choreographer, Mary Wigman was a leading innovator in Expressionist dance. Her radical explorations of movement and dance theory are credited with expanding the scope of dance as a theatrical art in her native Germany and beyond. This book combines for the first time: -a full account of Wigman's life and work -detailed discussion of her aesthetic theories, including the use of space as an "invisible partner" and the transcendent nature of performance -a commentary on her key works, including Hexentanz and The Seven Dances of Life -an extensive collection of practical exercises designed to provide an understanding of Wigman's choreographic principles and her uniquely immersive approach to dance."@en
