Several different theoretical points of view are presented in the chapters, illuminating the different paths through which dance can be approached in therapy.

Viele römische Autoren schrieben über den Gedanken, dass ein Abbild – gleich ob eine Skulptur oder ein Gemälde, eine verbale Beschreibung oder die Darstellung auf einer Bühne – nicht die Repräsentation eines Originals, sondern ein Prototyp sei, und fragten, ob einem Bild Aspekte des Lebens zu eigen seien. Eine erste Gruppe hielt diese Überzeugungen für das Resultat falscher Beobachtungen und Assoziationen des Betrachters. Andere Autoren betonten die handwerkliche Fertigkeit der Künstler. Eine dritte Gruppe interessierte sich für die Verbindung des Dargestellten, häufig eines Gottes, mit dem Übernatürlichen. Die drei Diskurse über die Animation von Bildern bieten einen Überblick darüber, was Intellektuelle im Römischen Reich als bedeutsam oder verwerflich beim Betrachten von Kunstwerken oder Kultobjekten ansahen. Dabei werden auch ontologische und epistemologische Fragestellungen berührt und die Grenze zwischen Leben und Tod erkundet.

Embodied Texts: Symbolist Playwright-Dancer Collaborations explores the dynamic relationship between Symbolist theatre and early modern dance across Europe from the 1890s through the 1930s. Gabriele D'Annunzio's projects with Ida Rubinstein; Hugo von Hofmannsthal's pantomimes for Grete Wiesenthal; W. B. Yeats's work with Michio Ito and Ninette de Valois; and Paul Claudel's collaborations with Jean Börlin and the Ballets Suédois are studied in depth to shed new light on an evolving dance-theatre form within Symbolist culture. Buoyed by the era's heightened interest in the expressive qualities of the body, these playwrights were highly invested in the authority of language, yet were drawn to the capacity of dance to evoke spiritual or psychological states which words could not completely capture. In its belief of fundamental correspondences among the arts, Symbolism encouraged experimentation across disciplines, and this study traces interconnections among many of its significant figures including Max Reinhardt, Claude Debussy, Gertrud Eysoldt, Edward Gordon Craig, Bronislava Nijinksa, Isadora Duncan, Jaques Dalcroze, Darius Milhaud, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Mariano Fortuny, Terence Gray, George Antheil, Eleonora Duse, and Michel Fokine.

Poetics Of Dance

When it was first published in Germany in 1995, Poetics of Dance was already seen as a path-breaking publication, the first to explore the relationships between the birth of modern dance, new developments in the visual arts, and the renewal of literature and drama in the form of avant-garde theatrical and movement productions of the early twentieth-century. Author Gabriele Brandstetter established in this book not only a relation between dance and critical theory, but in fact a full interdisciplinary methodology that quickly found foothold with other areas of research within dance studies. The book looks at dance at the beginnings of the 20th century, the time during which modern dance first began to make its radical departure from the aesthetics of classical ballet. Brandstetter traces modern dance's connection to new innovations and trends in visual and literary arts to argue that modern dance is in fact the preeminent symbol of modernity. As Brandstetter demonstrates, the aesthetic renewal of dance vocabulary which was pursued by modern dancers on both sides of the Atlantic - Isadora Duncan and Loie Fuller, Valeska Gert and Oskar Schlemmer, Vaslav Nijinsky and Michel Fokine - unfurled itself in new ideas about gender and subjectivity in the arts more generally, thus reflecting the modern experience of life and the self-understanding of the individual as an individual. As a whole, the book makes an important contribution to the theory of modernity.
