Should We Reconstruct?

(p.18) 2 The Scholar’s Conundrum
Finding Balanchine's Lost Ballets

This chapter considers the controversy surrounding dance reconstruction. It begins by defining terms such as reconstruction, revival, and restaging. The method used in reconstructing Funeral March is explained, as are issues such as the myth of the original, maintaining the authenticity of dances from other eras, and the ethereal nature of all dances, whether remaining in the repertory or lost. Dance reconstruction, when correctly approached, is a vital part of dance history.

Keywords:   Funeral March, dance reconstruction, repertory, dance history
