An Amazon of the Avant-Garde: Bronislava Nijinska in Revolutionary Russia
This article is a study of choreographer Bronislava Nijinska's artistic transformation during the Russian Revolution and its aftermath, the earliest abstract works she choreographed, and the treatises in which she sought to define the essence of dance and to articulate her vision of a contemporary approach to ballet composition and training. The research is based on primary sources, chiefly materials in the Bronislava Nijinska Collection, Music Division, Library of Congress.
