abstract dance

Quick Reference

A term loosely used to describe dance works without plot or character, though it has been argued that no dance can be entirely abstract given that movement is performed by men and women and must evoke some human content. Many dance works with no ostensible storyline suggest powerful images to their viewers, for example, Cunningham's Winterbranch or Ashton's Symphonic Variations.
