Description
Elemental Dance-Elemental MusicThe Munich Gunther School 1924-1944Edited by Michael KuglerTranslation by Margaret MurrayPaperback book271 pages
In 1924 Dorothee Gunther and Carl Orff founded a School for Gymnastics and Dance whose influence unfolded between the Weimar Republic and the end of the Second World War. In this book seven authors present the entire dance, musical, pedagogical and historical aspects of this school in which Carl Orff’s idea of Elemental Music took shape. A comprehensive documentation section comprises articles by Gunther and Orff from the 1920s and 30s, reviews of artistic and educational work as well as largely unpublished photograph material. Out of this there emerges a multifaceted and lively picture of a great approach to the art of dancing and an improvisatory music practice, arising out of the kindred collaboration between the dancer Maja Lex and the musician Gunild Keetman.
