The Bride is Dance

The Bride is Dance

(p.93) Chapter 5 The Bride is Dance

Douglas Rosenberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter uses Marcel Duchamp’s well-known sculpture The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even as a metaphor for a particular kind of courtship that is identified as present throughout the history of mediated dance. This courtship, which begins with the advent of technologies for extending vision and continues through the histories of film, video, digital imaging, and beyond, is one in which the very nature of dance is contested and reconsidered.

Keywords:   Duchamp, courtship, mediated dance, film, video, digital imaging
