16th Century German Peasant Dance from Period Woodcuts
- Elisa von Sohpey
- TSH B106 on Friday at 3:30PM
Reconstructions of German peasant dances based on woodcuts from the 16th century will be explored and brought to the dance floor. Since there are no texts from the region and period describing specific dance choreographies, German woodcut images as well as comparative studies from other styles of dance will be used as a basis for interpreting steps. Limitations of the research as well as alternate interpretations will also be discussed.
