In Landscape with Moving Figures, Ms. Jacobs reflects on the art form during the ten-year period from 1994-24 when dancers, choreographers and dance lovers were challenged by AIDS and the loss of the last of the founding giants of American dance. Grounded by her vast knowledge of the form and guided by her own sensitive gifts of perception, Ms. Jacobs ponders the very purpose of the art as she encounters it in landmark performances of the decade. She describes her multi-layered experiences watching performances by Bill T. Jones, New York City Ballet, Baryshnikov’s White Oak Project, the Royal Ballet, Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, Twyla Tharp and others.

From the Publisher:

Landscape With Moving Figures is the second in a series of monographs designed to provide a forum for the discussion and exploration of new and established issues in the fields of dance and movement studies.

From the Inside Flap:

Novelist, fashion historian, and award-winning cultural reporter for Vanity Fair, Laura Jacobs ranges far and plays deep. It is as a dance critic, however, that she stands tallest. From her observation deck at the New Criterion, surveying dance over the arc of a decade that bridges two millennia, Jacobs has forged her own poetics of response. Her book does the art of dance and the art of criticism equal glory.
