The advent of contemporary dance was “one of the major artistic phenomena of the twentieth century”, according to the dance historian and art critic Laurence Louppe. This book, which has become a reference, gives the keys to understanding the different forms. The author probes the history of dance, its resources, its abundant theoretical and practical tools, its own creative modalities, while revealing to which sensory and perceptive experiences the spectator is invited.
