Subtitled The World of Modern Dance, Jack Anderson's Art Without Boundaries traces the century-long history of modern dance, and argues that such dance owes its vitality to its embrace of cultural inflows. As you'd expect, based on his writing in the New York Times and Dancing Times, Anderson gives the impression of having been everywhere and seen everything. Even such seminal artists as Isadora Duncan and Ruth St. Denis benefit from the fresh angle, showing how African and even Asian influences changed their thinking. Though Anderson seems much less fascinated with the personalities of the 1990s than those of the 1920s and 1930s, the later years give him a chance to explore the global cross-pollination that led to Japanese Butoh and corresponding movements in Africa, Germany, Russia, the Netherlands, China, Spain, Australia, the Czech Republic, and elsewhere. Art Without Boundaries leaves you on the edge of what promises to be a fascinating new century of dance.About the Author:
