The images in this book were taken in Paris over the last forty years. It features most of the great dancers and dance companies of the second half of the twentieth century, such as Rudolf Nureyev, Sylvie Guillem, Paolo Bortoluzzi, Violette Verdy, Maia Plissetsakaia, Carolyn Carlson, Charles Cre-Ange, Susan Farrel, Meg Stuart, and the companies of Pina Bausch, Lucinda Childs, l'Opera de Paris and William Forsythe. For Marion-Valentine, dance is movement, energy, drawing in space. The magic of photography allows her to pick out the isolated, unrepeatable gestures that form movement in Dance. There is a single moment during the trajectory of a leap where the dancer seems to transform into a comet or a star; this the exact moment that Marion-Valentine captures, just as a sculptor chooses a particular instant to represent movement, allowing us to imagine its origin and its end. All types of dance are celebrated, from classical to contemporary, in a beautifully produced book of over 100 duotone photographs.
