...their effect was the opposite of illuminating: they added yet another layer of stiff distancing from the action, which had already been paralysed by Stravinsky's insistence that the main characters behave like statues. (A frieze‐like set, drawn by the composer's artist son Théodore , is prescribed in the published score.) While the effect of this procedure has been compared to that of Brecht's ‘epic theatre’, it seems more likely beholden to older Russian‐symbolist notions of art as harbinger of a new mythological age and conveyor of spiritual community....

...of divertisement [ sic ].” Several French scholars of the mid-nineteenth-century studied the contemporary performance of ballads in different French provinces and observed how they were sung to accompany group dancing. Théodore Hersart La Villemarqué noted how, in Brittany, verses were improvised while dancing. Jérôme Bujeaud and Théodore de Puymaigre wrote about the close relationship between the dancing and ballad texts. These accounts, and similar ones offered by scholars in many parts of Europe, were tremendously influential and fueled the debates...

...performing, cakewalks, can-cans, and “animal dances.” The most astonishing sights are casually framed together; conversely, certain natural qualities, especially indications of speed or wind or gravitational force, look almost surreal.

...pictures. Mondrian's art derived at least in part from his love of jazz, social dancing, and modern music. Indeed, for Mondrian, Palucca's 1926 canvas was a preparatory step toward his climactic works, such as Foxtrot A ( 1930 ) and Victory Boogie Woogie ( 1943/44 ).

The angular, disciplined movements of exotic dancers provided him with a point of...
