Analyzing and Reconstructing Historical N.E. Dance
- Tsivia bas Tamara
- TSH 122 on Saturday at 2:00PM
This class is based on an article in the early 60s of Tournaments Illuminated where Baroness TSivia and Baroness Enid Aurelia of the Tin Isles discussed how to interpret static images of women dancing in order to document the historicity of dance steps from the Near Eastern world. Students will be shown images from Mughul miniatures, Greek carvings, and other extant representations of women as entertainers and analyze what these tell a dancer.
