"The Green Table"
"The Green Table" is known as the masterpiece of Kurt Jooss’ career. It is a timeless dance that continues to speak to audiences today, even though it was first choreographed in 1932. Many ballet companies have restaged "The Green Table," such as the Joffrey Ballet, as it is a piece for all generations. This work has been reviewed by many dance critics and is a never-ending source for research. "The Green Table" also serves as tangible evidence for the impact made on ballet and modern dance.
