Editorial Reviews


"A revolutionary encounter with historical sources which Franko treats with erudition and imaginative analysis."--Dance Research

"It is not simply a question of 'seeing the new in the old,' but a recognition of the necessity of reconstruction for the purpose of aesthetic progress." --The Drama Review

"Mark Franko is a choreographer, dancer, dance theorist, and dance scholar, and this book reflects the full range of his artistic and intellectual commitments. It is a profoundly interdisciplinary work, which takes as its subject French court dance between 1580 and 1670 but which speaks most urgently to choreographers of the late twentieth century."
--Dance Research Journal

"By analyzing actual examples from [the French Court Ballet] era, Franko unlocks the deep communion between dance and text during that century, while simultaneously making a connection to the present day. Dance as Text: Ideologies of the Baroque Body impresses on many fronts."--Heather Desaulniers Dance Commentary

About the Author

Mark Franko was born in New York City and was a professional dancer before becoming a choreographer and a dance scholar. He has written six books and continues to choreograph and perform.
