The March 2004 issue of "Ballet-dance Magazine" is out now, so do give it a whirl: www.ballet-dance.com
Here is a flavour of some of the highpoints: Letter from the Editors
In this month's Ballet-Dance Magazine we focus on Merce Cunningham. The term "innovator" is often bandied about, but Cunningham is the real thing: introducing chance into dance composition, detaching movement from the accompanying music, working with computer technology to create dances - the list goes on and on. We are delighted to have two articles by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company's Archivist and internationally famous author, David Vaughan, together with reviews from four countries and a wealth of other material from our archives.
Our Resolution! coverage continues and we welcome Sanjoy Roy, who writes for 'The Guardian' and "Dance Now" and reviews the final performance of this UK festival of new dance makers.
Spring finds companies both on tour and at home. The Hamburg Ballet's 'Nijinsky' generated deep interest during their US tour. And selected from our very busy French language forum 'Danser en français', we have several reviews of the Paris Opera Ballet's 'Giselle'. The Royal Ballet's Alina Cojocaru arrived to guest and seems to have charmed everyone as she invariably does in London.
The Editors of Ballet-Dance Magazine As always, we'd would love to hear your comments about the new issue.
