About Choreo-Graphing Spectacularity
The lecture will focus on the phenomena of displaying spectacularity on stage as recorded in notation. The methodological frame of this analysis is ‘dance literacy’ as exhibited in the widely documented corpus of notated dance texts; the content is the (exemplary) exploration of the media and aesthetics of spectacularity as skillfully communicated in the ‘writings’ of nineteenth-century ballet masters in their respective approaches to choreo(-)graphy – among these ballet masters are Henri Justamant, Marius Petipa, and the notators of Petipa’s works. The perspective on crafting – or manufacturing – ballets intends to contribute to the discourse on the then professional concepts and routines of ‘mise en scène’ (in Justamant’s words) mainly in France and Russia and on the aesthetical programs and diversities the nineteenth-century ballet masters met – and created.
About Claudia Jeschke

Along with her studies of Theaterwissenschaft at Munich University and a doctoral dissertation on the history of dance notation systems Claudia Jeschke was professionally trained in various dance forms. Deeply interested in theater she started with choreographing and performing as well as acting and directing – always with a strong emphasis on issues of documentation, notation, and archiving. Her academic and practical expertise allows her to approach dance heritages both in actu‘ on stage and in academic writing – for example in deciphering Vaslav Nijinsky’s dance notation system and restoring his ballet L’Après-midi d’un Faune (together with Ann Hutchinson Guest, last restaging: London 2012, English National Ballet; 2015 Sarasota Ballet Florida). As a guest professor Jeschke taught in Europe, USA (University of California at Riverside), Canada (University of Toronto), Asia (several universities in Tokyo and a lecture tour to China) and South America (Universities of Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre). She introduced dance studies as an academic discipline in German theater and dance departments such as Munich, Leipzig (where she finished her habilitation) and Cologne. In 2004 Jeschke joined the faculty of the Department for Studies in the Fine Arts, Music, and Dance at Salzburg University as the then first and only professor of dance studies in Austria and became head of the Derra de Moroda Dance Archives (ddmarchiv.org). Her extensive body of publications focuses on dance historical and theoretical issues as well as on movement research and notation – and the discursive transfers between these fields of research (for example in exhibitions and recently a series of lecture performances on ‘contemporaneity’ of dance history and historiography).
