An appeal to Danmarks Radio
Posted 09 December 2002 - 08:01 AM
The films shew the essential technical features of the Bournonville school, danced by some of the Greats of the day, including Flemming Ryberg and Toni Lander at the height of their powers, moving on to enchaînements from the Schools named for each day of the week, that are of transcendental difficulty. Some of the dancers are middling, some are extraordinary, but they all get the point across.
To mark Bournonville's 200th anniversary, it would be a true service to the dancing world for Danmarks Radio to reissue those tapes now, sub-titled in English, in commercial form.
I simply cannot believe that a document of this historical importance has been mouldering in the archives of State television for almost thirty years.
Incidentally, I cannot copy those tapes, because a/ they are now in very bad condition and b/ I do not have a machine to copy ( nor even a television for that matter - I watch at friends ! ), but if anyone is in Paris, they are welcome to contact me to have a look at them.
