Image <BR><small>'The Green Table' from the website of <A HREF="http://www.dartington.org.uk/setting.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Dartington College</B></A></small><P>No doubts regarding my recommendation for the week - Thursday's screening of the Joffrey's 'The Green Table' by Kurt Jooss. It's difficult to over-estimate the importance of this extraordinary work which many regard as one of the Masterpieces of the 20th C. I find it remarkable that this very early modern dance/ballet hybrid work from 1932 still looks as vibrant as ever.<P>There isn't a commercial video available and although Birmingham Royal Ballet have performed it as recently as the mid-1990s, there are no signs that it will be presented again, now that its strong advocate Sir Peter Wright is no longer on the staff of the Company. So this is a rare chance to view the piece. There are two Joffrey recordings - one from the 1970s, which I have on video and one from this year filmed as part of the celebration of the centenary of Jooss. It's not clear from the BBC listing on their website which version is to be shown. <P>The screening of 'The Green Table' is followed by a documentary about Jooss, who escaped the Nazis and spent the 30s touring Europe with his Company and the war years at Dartington College in Devon. Strongly recommended to those who have access to BBC Knowledge. <P>The future of dance on TV will be interesting to follow as digital moves surely to centre stage.<P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited November 13, 2001).]

Thanks Pete for your on-going diligence. 'Terrestial viewers' conjures up images for me of the alternative - 'Alien viewers', but I always was an SF buff.<P>Seriously, the RSPCA saying that 'A puppy is not just for Christmas' does put one in mind of the situation for dance as well.<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 02, 2001).]

There is an article in this month's Dancing Times about Artsworls and BBc coverage of the Arts.<P>I haven't had chance to read it yet. Anyone else seen it?

Thanks Pete for compiling and linking for us - I will be getting a more sophisticated package of tv channels in the New Year and will be able to take advantage of these programmes!

My thanks too. The indefatigible Pete has also written a preview to the TV version of AMP's 'Car Man' on ballet.co. Here's <A HREF="http://www.ballet.co.uk/magazines/yr_01/dec01/pb_c4_car_man_1201.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>the link</B></A>. 'Car Man' is on Channel 4; 22 Dec 2001; starting at 21:00.<P>And here's our own behind the scenes look at <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/amp-la2001/index.html" TARGET=_blank><B>AMP rehearsing 'Car Man' in LA</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 22, 2001).]

And Debra Craine of the Times gives us her views on Christmas TV:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>What is it about Christmas that suddenly turns everyone into a balletomane? BBC2 is devoting most of Christmas Day to the art form. Ballet Day starts at 10.45am with Powell and Pressburger’s The Red Shoes, still the most resonant dance film made. Its visual imagination is stunning, and Moira Shearer as the ballerina torn between art and love is wild-eyed and wonderful. The Red Shoes ballet sequence (choreographed by the great Leonide Massine) is unbelievably luxuriant, and unexpectedly surreal. A classic. <P>At 12.55pm be sure to catch the Royal Ballet’s Nutcracker. It’s a real treat: gorgeous, magical and romantic. For some reason the BBC programmers felt compelled to follow it with an episode of The Simpsons, perhaps to give dance fans a chance to nip into the ******* and put on the kettle. But at 3.10pm it’s back to Ballet Day with Rudolf Nureyev’s version of Don Quixote, again danced by the Royal Ballet. It’s comic and colourful, and a ray of sunshine on what’s bound to be a gloomy winter day. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,62-2001592586,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A><P>
