  • Rudolf Nureyev

    Julie Kavanagh

    Product Code: BWFJV
    Paperback
    NOW A MAJOR FILM BY RALPH FIENNES, THE WHITE CROW 'A gripping account of an extraordinary life' Daily Telegraph Born on a train in Stalin's Russia, Rudolf Nureyev was ballet's first pop icon. No other dancer of our time has generated the same excitement - both on and off stage. Nureyev's achievements and conquests became legendary: he rose out of Tatar peasant poverty to become the Kirov's thrilling maverick star; slept with his beloved mentor's wife; defected to the West in 1961; sparked Rudimania across the globe; established the most rhapsodic partnership in dance history with the middle-aged Margot Fonteyn; reinvented male technique; gatecrashed modern dance; moulded new stars; and staged Russia's unknown ballet masterpieces in the West. He and his life were simply astonishing. 'Magnificent, a triumph. Captures every facet of this extraordinary man' Mail on Sunday 'The definitive study of a man who, in his combination of aesthetic grace and psychological grime, can truly be called a sacred monster' Observer 'Undoubtedly the definitive biography' Sunday Telegraph

    Mark Bruce

    There are many skills one needs to produce a piece of dance. Bruce describes the basic foundation or ingredients of his version of Dance Theatre as: Movement, Drama, Sound and Vision. A choreographer has to study all of them to the best of their ability and learn how to combine them. Award-winning choreographer Mark Bruce's aim as an artist is to tap the subconscious, our hearts; transcend our everyday lives and hopefully stumble upon some truth along the way. On Choreography and Dance Theatre will be an invaluable artist's guide to making innovative new dance work.

    Mauro Pawlowski

    Product Code: AWLES
    Hardback
    "Vandekeybus brought into focus a whole new genre of modern dance...Combat rolls, breakneck sprints and savagely wrestled duets became the defining vocabulary of a new generation." The Guardian. In 2016, Wim Vandekeybus' company Ultima Vez celebrates its 30th birthday. Never before has his oeuvre been recorded in a book. Until now. This extraordinary book is a visual trip through the most powerful images from his repertoire, a quest for the ideas and themes that inspire him. It aso contains unpublished texts, notes and scripts from his shows and films. A number of compagnons de route, such as David Byrne, Mauro Pawlowski, and Peter Verhelst, offer a personal textual contribution. Choreographer, filmmaker and photographer Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez are at the top of the dance industry in Belgium - and around the world. After a cooperation with Jan Fabre, Vandekeybus founded his very own company Ultima Vez in 1986. His first performance, What the Body Does Not Remember (1987), was an international success and was awarded a Bessie Award (New York Dance and Performance Award), a prize awarded for pioneering work.
