Green Table DVD
When two sets of diplomats fail to come to agreement around a large green table, the tragedy of war unfolds. The vividly metaphoric dance piece created in 1932 by German choreographer Kurt Jooss is here performed by Chicago's Joffrey Ballet; the production is staged by Jooss' daughter, Anna Markard─who has guided revivals of the powerful work since her father's passing in 1979. Pianists May Sofge and Fiona Boznos play the Frederic Cohen score. 37 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English.
