as India prepares for a the German Festival, an indian writer for the hindu newspaper desrcribes the history and development of german modern dance.....<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>To coincide with the German Festival in India which is on tillMarch 2001,<BR> PRASANNA RAMASWAMY takes us through a series of images from the<BR> history of German modern dance and dance theatre. <P>- - - <P> As I step out of the Folkwang Dance School I hear the chiming of the bells from the ancient church located in the same street. Suddenly I remember that one of the dancers told me that there are inner city churches like that of those in Dortmund which are from time to time opened for modern dance performances or shows of work in progress where the public sits at the choir stall and the dancers perform in the cleared out nave of the Gothic Church. In one century, dance sure has come a long way.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <A HREF="http://www.indiaserver.com:80/thehindu/2000/10/08/stories/09080332.htm" TARGET=_blank>the hindu article</A> <p>[This message has been edited by grace (edited October 09, 2000).]
