Brush up your knowledge about the history of contemporary dance

Working in the US in the 1950s, Merce Cunningham abandoned the principles of expressionism. In the following decades, choreographers such as Lucinda Childs - who had studied at the Cunningham studio -  created influential works at New York’s Judson Dance Theater. Meanwhile, in Flanders, pioneers of contemporary dance, such as Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, were developing their talents in Maurice Béjart’s school. De Keersmaeker's first performances in the 1980s are clearly influenced by American minimalism, but have their own distinctive stamp.
