Strange Footing

Seeta Chaganti

University of Chicago Press

This chapter reenacts the round dance often called carole by juxtaposing it with Mark Morris’s L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato (1988). In this reenactment, the carole reveals its virtual circles and arcs of force. These virtual supplements to the dance, untimely and spatially estranging, complicate the carole's superficial appearance of symmetry and periodicity.

Keywords:   carole, Mark Morris, "L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato", reenactment, virtual, spatiality, Romance of the Rose, media, Bodley 264, medieval ivory
