Prof. Lynn Garafola discusses work of Russian choreographer Michel Fokine

In The Washington Post, Barnard dance professor Lynn Garafola is quoted in an article about Russian-born choreographer Michel Fokine and the Mariinsky Ballet's upcoming performance of his historic works. An excerpt:

“This business of thinking about history and thinking about repertory in terms of history, what has been changed and why, what ideas did those ideas reflect — this is esthetic and political and cultural,” Garafola says. “I think there has been a lot of rethinking in the two companies, and I think this Fokine program was probably the initiator of this rethinking because it came so early. He was a natural starting point.”
