Movie Reviews

One-of-a-kind DVD presentation
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 04/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Produced in France and featuring both English and French audio tracks, The Art of Baroque Dance: Folies d'Espagne from Page to Stage is a stellar survey of the nuances of traditional 17th century dance, as it has been preserved and practiced up to the modern day. Historical and architectural images intersperse this wondrously informative examination of Baroque dance notation, treatment of space, arm embellishments, relation to music, and interpretation of the dancer. Director and choreographer Natalie Van Parys applies her years of experience in Baroque dance companies in this one-of-a-kind DVD presentation enthusiastically recommended for anyone interested in the rich cultural history of Baroque dance. 45 minutes, color."
