A History of Dance
On Screen

A Film by Reiner E. Moritz

Alvin Ailey, Pina Bausch, Maurice Béjart,
Matthew Bourne, Margot Fonteyn, Martha Graham,
John Neumeier, Rudolf Nureyev, Anna Pavlova,
Roland Petit, Sasha Waltz
and others

In this revelatory new documentary, director Reiner E. Moritz poses the question: How has the media influenced dance in the twentieth century and vice versa? Over this period an extensive archive of beautiful choreography, performed by the finest dancers has accumulated on film and television, resulting in a major dispersion of dance through the media. In addition, new art forms such as dance movies and ballet films have emerged from this development in moving images, where dance is created specifically for the camera. A History of Dance on Screen contains an impressive amount of archive footage featuring the greatest dancers and choreographers of the twentieth and twenty first centuries, framed by in-depth interviews with great personalities of the contemporary dance scene.

history of different dance styles with beautiful pictures of well known dancers (classical ballet, modern dance from 1920 to today) i just love it & will watch the dvd again&again!
Not widely representative. 6 Sept. 2014

Oddly disconnected. A reasonably good selection, but not the ultimate presentation. More numerous examples of dancers and their work would have been much appreciated.
