Write a Review

Which dancers dance through fire? Why does it take several hours to put on make-up for a kathakali dance? Which dance company uses tai chi, meditation, Chinese opera movement, martial arts, modern dance and ballet in its dancing? African and Asian Dance provides a detailed look at the development of African and Asian dancing, from the huge variety of traditional folk dances to the modern techniques used by choreographers such as Germaine Acogny and the Cloud Gate Theatre today. The book looks at how the choreography and improvisation differ from other styles of dance, and explores the part played by costumes and make-up.
