Course Units: 1.0
(TBD: Staff) Examination of Western European dance and dance texts as revelatory of broader historical and cultural patterns, with special analyses of dance as a key tool of nation building (as with the court of Louis XIV) and/or a central medium of artistic creation (as in 1920’s Paris). Primary focus on France as creator, user, and potential abuser of dance’s power, but some attention given other European models (Berlin, St. Petersburg, London). Readings from theoreticians, historians, and dance litterateurs (Moliere, Gautier, Cocteau). Cross-Listed: FRN 421  and MLT 211  CC: HUL, LCC
