Dealing exclusively with developments in modern dance since 1951, this book is for anyone who wishes to understand and experience nonliteral dance: students and teachers, dancers and critics.

Special attention is given to the works of Alwin Nikolais, Merce Cunningham, Sybil Shearer, Erick Hawkins, Murray Lewis and Paul Taylor. . . . This work packs a good deal of solid information and professional awareness.
