Merce Cunningham : a lifetime of dance by Merce Cunningham( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Merce Cunningham, a colossus of 20th-century choreography, is perhaps most famous for his sheer fecundity--inventing steps, choreographing 200+ dances, and over 800 "Events" (site-specific works). At the forefront of the American avant-garde for more than 50 years, he abandoned conventional elements of dance structure, most controversially, the relationship of dance and music influenced by his collaboration with composer John Cage. Endlessly inventive and inquisitive, Cunningham collaborated with a wide range of composers, designers, and artists, incorporating video into pieces, and employing computerized choreography in his later years to instruct members of his company. Unlike most choreographers, movement itself was his principal subject matter--neither narrative nor musical form determines the dance structure. Cunningham leaves a vast legacy, but he expressed his view of his art saying, "Dancing is the art of the present tense." Cunningham himself, along with his dancers, collaborators, and observers, traces the course of his long career and that of his dance company. Topics include: his special qualities as a dancer; his performances as a member of Martha Graham's company; his choreographic approach and sources of inspiration; his longtime association and collaboration with composer John Cage; his residency at Black Mountain College; the development of his use of chance procedures; the early years of his company; his preference for avant-garde music, and his collaborations with various composers; and his use of technological innovations such as the computer program Life forms

Picasso and dance by Opéra national de Paris( Visual )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A program commemorating Pablo Picasso as an artistic collaborator with Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. The first part of the program, The story of a marriage uses Picasso's portrait of his ballerina wife Olga Koklova as a departure point for discussions of his designs for the ballets Parade, Le tricorne, Pulcinella, Mercure, and Le train bleu. The second part consists of reconstructions of two ballets, recorded in performance by the Paris Opéra Ballet at the Palais Garnier. Between 1917 and 1962, Picasso was involved in creating the designs for nine ballets. Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train) dates from 1924 and Le Tricorne (The Three-Cornered Hat) from 1919. These two historic ballets, created originally by Sergei Diaghilev, have been revived by the Paris Opera Ballet. Le Train Bleu is an operetta dansé of a chic and flippant society. Jean Cocteau, who wrote the scenario, mockingly celebrates the cult of open air life, fine bodies and sport. The dances are inspired by golf, tennis, swimming and acrobatics. Le Tricorne is Spanish from start to finish. Picasso, a native of Andalusia, created sets, costumes, and a stage curtain, which evokes the atmosphere of the ballet by means of a typically Spanish scene. The story, told with humour and warmth, is of a miller's wife, her jealous husband and a senile magistrate by whom she is pursued
