9780374104559: Writing in the Dark, Dancing in The New Yorker: An Arlene Croce Reader

The best of America's best writer on dance

"Theoretically, I am ready to go to anything-once. If it moves, I'm interested; if it moves to music, I'm in love."

From 1973 until 1996 Arlene Croce was The New Yorker's dance critic, a post created for her. Her entertaining, forthright, passionate reviews and essays have revealed the logic and history of ballet, modern dance, and their postmodern variants to a generation of theatergoers. This volume contains her most significant and provocative pieces-over a fourth have never appeared in book form-writings that reverberate with consequence and controversy for the state of the art today.

Book Description:

The best of America's best writer on dance "Croce is the Jane Austen of dance criticism . . . in breadth as well as in intensity the best dance critic around."— The New York Times Book Review “This substantial collection will stand as an essential guide to the dance of a demanding and exciting era.”—Booklist “A treasure trove for dance lovers.”—Publishers Weekly

This volume contains her most significant and provocative pieces—over a fourth of which never appeared in book form—covering classical ballets, the rise of George Balanchine, the careers of Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, and Merce Cunningham, and the controversies surrounding many of the twentieth century’s great dance companies.
