Danser l'imprévuUne lecture politique et sensible des Cahiers de Vaslav Nijinski

Madeleine Abassade - Danser l\'imprévu
Through a new reading of the Notebooks of Vaslav Nijinsky, who was described as "insane", and by taking them out of their reduction to a psychiatric diagnosis, Madeleine Abassade reveals the dancer's revolt against an established order of which he was the instrument and from which he sought to emancipate himself by creating his own choreographies.
Madeleine Abassade, who has a degree in dance and philosophy, was a cultural manager in psychiatry for thirty years.
Foreword by Anne Boissière.
Postface by Aurore Després.
