New book from Oxford University Press!
'Ted Shawn: His Life, Writings, and Dances' is the first critical biography of the dance legend, offering an in-depth look into Shawn's pioneering role in the formation of Denishawn, the first American modern dance company and school, the first all-male dance company, and Jacob's Pillow, the internationally renowned dance festival and school located in the Berkshires. The book explores Shawn's writings and dances in relation to emerging discourses of modernism, eugenics and social evolution, revealing an untold story about the ways that Shawn's homosexuality informed his choreographic vision.Find the book here
