Dance as Reverie: Ancient Preludes to a Modern Idea

Anastasia-Erasmia Peponi

That the visual experience of ballet performance resembles dreams has been a particularly popular idea in modern times, repeatedly stated in influential nineteenth- century ballet criticism, such as that of Théophile Gautier and Stéphane Mallarmé. This talk will explore the cognitive and broader aesthetic implications of this exciting notion and will trace similar approaches to dance in Greek and Greco-Roman antiquity.
