Society of Dance History Scholars, Special Topics Conference

Sacre Celebration: Revisiting, Reflecting, Revisioning

York University, Toronto
Thursday, April 18 – Saturday, April 20, 2013

Join scholars and artists in music, dance, and Dalcroze for an amazing look back at 1913’s Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring). With papers, panels, workshops and performances, the conference will be fascinating and informative.

Monica Dale will present an active session illustrating the contrasting aesthetic sensibilities in 1913: Isadora Duncan and Jaques-Dalcroze on one side, and 20th-century modern trends represented by Stravinsky on the other.

More information will follow.
