'A Cheat's guide to the Contemporary Choreographer', March 6, 2003

Reviewer: A reader from United Kingdom

An essential for every student of dance. Bremser's Fifty Contemporary Choreographers is a great reference to go to when researching a particular chorographer and has certainly helped me through many tight deadlines. Information is comprehensive, factual and easily read.

A vast range of choreographers are looked at within the publication including the great Martha Graham who is recognised as the founder as contemporary dance to the post-modern Trisha Brown, Lea Anderson and Matthew Bourne.

By featuring choreographers who are not solely recognised for a purely contemporary style, such as Lloyd Newson of DV8 Physical Theatre, Fifty Contemporary Choreographers helps to clarify the blurred boundaries between many of the dance styles found today. In a few short pages you can find the life history of a choreographer, their style and influences as well as listed sources of information available.

Fifty Contemporary Choreographers is an essentaal resource for anyone interested in finding out about Dance. I would recommend it to dance students and enthusiasts everywhere.
