Fifty Contemporary Choreographers Reviews

"[A]n impressive array of thirty-one contributors... The exemplary Introduction provided by Deborah Jowitt, amounts to a concise overview of modern dance and other movements, such as post modern dance, which are often included within that convenient, early 20th century term. A glance at the Table of Contents indicates the dazzling range of diversity among the choreographers selected for publication. [A] researcher seeking solid information on Mats Ek, Karole Armitage or Lar Lubovitch will find answers to immediate questions and guides to deeper study. This well-organized guide will find a welcome place in any reference collection devoted to the performing arts, and as television and videos make dance more accessible, reference librarians in general situations might be approached by patrons wanting to know more about Mark Morris or Matthew Bourne. "Fifty Contemporary Choreographers provides the answers. It's a gem and one that responds to a real need.."
"Their essays offer cogent, incisive analyses of a choreographer's work. Although a reference book "Fifty Contemporary Choreographers is well worth reading straight through for a concise overview of the state of British, American, and Western European dance today. This work is recommended for collections with an interest in contemporary dance.."
-"American Reference Books Annual, 2000
