Laurence Louppe: Poetika sodobnega plesa oblikovanje/design: Mauricio Ferlin
The French edition of The Poetics of Contemporary Dance was first published in 1997 and was soon recognised as a key work in the area of theory and philosophy of contemporary dance. The importance and quality of this book lies in the author’s in-depth insight into theoretical and practical works of many dance makers from the beginning of the 20th century to the 1980s, while connecting them with certain basic philosophical insights in French aesthetics. Loupe however does not apply philosophical concepts to explain dance practices or articulations but thinks the dancing act together with dance and philosophy.
