Experimentalist to a degree unique in ballet, the 1920s witnessed the rise of a Soviet dance avant-garde unparalleled anywhere in the West. Souritz, head of the Dance Section of the Moscow Institute of the History of the Arts, draws on Russian archival material, theater literature, and reminiscences of performers, designers, and choreographers to portray the period and its subsequent influence on the development of American ballet. The illustrations are sensational--rare color and b&w photographs as well as drawings by contemporaneous Cubist artists. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
