  • Dance Theatre Of Harlem [1989] Dance Theatre Of Harlem | DVD | (28/02/2001) from £13.42  |  Saving you £3.64 (14.60%)  |  RRP £24.99

    The Dance Theatre of Harlem has long since entered the history books as the world's foremost black classical ballet company, founded in 1969 by School of American Ballet graduate Arthur Mitchell. In 1989, RM Arts and Danmarks Radio produced a studio repertoire of four of the company's most popular works, encapsulating the extraordinary mixture of grace and physicality that have captivated audiences globally. Quite possibly, too, they have attracted and inspired a different audience for whom the traditional trappings of classical ballet--tutus and tights--hold little appeal. Take "Troy Game", a short piece for six male dancers who tumble, fight, swagger, jostle and play in a joyful, gladiatorial celebration of male muscularity. It's ironic, sometimes challenging, and very funny. Or take "John Henry", an interpretation of the life of the legendary factory worker who resisted the increased automation of the steel industry but wore himself out in the process. These are ballets that draw heavily on folklore to create tension which is almost tangible. "Fall River Legend" is a reworking of the Lizzie Borden story (choreography by Agnes de Mille) and "The Beloved" is based on the story of an over-zealous minister who throttles his wife over a bible. It seems invidious to pick out individual artists but Virginia Johnson as Lizzie and Eddie J Shellman as John Henry embody the dramatic, character-driven dancing which is the foundation of the Dance Theatre of Harlem's reputation: exhilarating and compelling. On the DVD: PCM stereo-sound quality is adequate for the music, much of it derived from American folk tunes. The 4:3 picture format favours some fine camera work which moves in among the dancers. This is especially effective for the fast-moving "Troy Game" and the stylised settings of "Fall River Legend", where the choreography generates an electric air of personal meltdown around axe murderess Lizzie Borden. An important feature is an introduction to the Dance Theatre of Harlem by its founder, the genial Arthur Mitchell. The accompanying booklet provides a potted history. --Piers Ford

    Jose Limon (1908-1972) was a Mexican-American choreographer who continues to be regarded as one of the modern dance world's seminal creative artists known for his intense dramatic presence and the theatricality and musicality of his dances. Here for the first time on video are three of his most famous works with the original casts filmed in their entirety for the Canadian Broadcasting Company in the 1950s.THE MOORS PAVANE (1949) is generally considered to be one of the great masterworks in the modern repertory. In the form of a Renaissance dance Limon destills the legend of Othello into a taut one-act human drama with music by Henry Pucell. Joining Limon are his close collaborators Lucas Hoving Pauline Koner and Betty Jones. Telecast date: March 6 1955.THE TRAITOR (1954) was Limon's response to the McCarthy hearings and the climate of betrayal that haunted the arts and entertainment fields during this period. Against a music score of violence passion and tenderness (by Gunther Schuller) the tragedy of Judas is portrayed as if it were taking place in modern times. Telecast date: October 23 1955.THE EMPEROR JONES (1956) is based upon the play by Eugene O'Neill wherein a fugitive from a chain gang sets himself up as the ruler of an island domain. He becomes a tyrant and his mistreated subjects eventually rebel and hunt him down. For this dance Limon commissioned a musical score from Heitor Villa-Lobos. Telecast date: March 13 1957.
