"The Grotesque Dancer on the Eighteenth-Century Stage examines the theatrical world of the ballerino grottesco, Magri's own career as a dancer in Italy and Vienna, the genre of pantomime ballet as it was practiced by Magri and his colleagues across Europe, the relationships between dance and pantomime in this type of work, the music used to accompany pantomime ballets, and the movement vocabulary of the grotesque dancer. Appendixes contain scenarios from eighteenth-century pantomime ballets, including several of Magri's own devising, an index to the step-vocabulary discussed in Magri's book, and an index of dancers in Italy known to have performed as grotteschi. Illustrations, musical examples, and dance notations also supplement the text."--Jacket.
