About the Author:

Sally Banes is the Marian Hannah Winter Professor Emerita of Theater History and Dance Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Her many books include Reinventing Dance in the 1960s, Terpsichore in Sneakers, Dancing Women, Democracy’s Body, and Greenwich Village 1963.

Review:

"Banes is one of the major dance critics and historians of our time. She explores a wide range of artistic and cultural issues--from experimental art to disco dancing to ballet dancing for elephants--in prose as engaging as it is erudite. Experiencing her mind, as many serious lovers of dance will agree, is a heady experience."--Deborah Jowitt, New York University, author of "Time and the Dancing Image"

""Before, Between, Beyond" maps two paths simultaneously: that of Sally Banes's personal evolution from a young reporter covering contemporary dance at the start of the dance boom of the early 1970s through the full establishment of contemporary dance late in the twentieth century, teamed with her transition into the pioneering dance historian of postmodern dance."--Janice Ross, Stanford University, author of "Moving Lessons"

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Sally Banes has been a pre-eminent critic and scholar of American contemporary dance, and "Before, Between, Beyond" spans more than thirty years of her prolific work. Beginning with her first published review and including previously unpublished papers, this collection presents some of her finest works on dance and other artistic forms. It concludes with her most recent research on George Balanchine's dancing elephants. In each piece, Banes' detailed eye and sensual prose strike a rare balance between description, context, and opinion, delineating the American artistic scene with remarkable grace. With contextualizing essays by dance scholars Andrea Harris, Joan Acocella, and Lynn Garafola, this is a compelling, insightful, indispensable summation of Banes' critical career.
