Abstract (English)

This book, which centres on how the moving body can be translated graphically, includes references to 25 international choreographers and dancers. Three essayists pose the problems associated with a written form for dance, analyse Feuillet's approach to written choreography (1699), and consider the innovative work of Laban, Schoenberg, and Kandinsky. An interview with Virilio brings dance's spatial aspect closer to architecture, while another with choreographer Thom dwells on his interest in biological metaphors. Includes a survey of choreographer notations and drawings since 1495. 62 bibl. ref.
