Title:
Stravinsky the Global Dancer
Authors:
Jordan, Stephanie; Nicholas, Larraine
Abstract:
Funded by the AHRC, the database documents over 1,200 dances set to Stravinsky’s music and contributes to Panel O’s category of outcomes that are primarily scholarly resources. It was a research exercise in itself to establish the layout of the database in terms of fields and search facilities that would be useful to the study of work by Stravinsky and the choreographers and companies represented, and as a model for other databases. There is no other choreomusical chronology of this size, useful for tracing data on specific pieces as well as on dances grouped under choreographer, score, company and country (in the form of short and full listings). The bank of information in SGD has already served as a basis for Jordan’s book Stravinsky Dances, in which it is cited as a linked source. The database is geared towards both music and dance scholars, enthusiasts and members of the profession and, though emphasising productions until 2003, it offers ongoing interactive opportunities. It has already proved useful to the profession (e.g. a source for programme notes at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, an article in Dance Now). Featured during a Promenade concert radio programme and referenced on several websites (e.g. Radio 3), its presence has encouraged numerous viewers to contribute further information. An introductory guide to the database methodology is included as part of the website, detailing the working methodology and the sources used (including the main Stravinsky library in Basle, the New York Public Library and Harvard Theatre Collection) and arguing the layout of information. It acknowledges an international group of contributors (scholars, choreographers and dance specialists). The database represents the equal work of two authors, as indicated in the credits, although Jordan obtained the AHRC grant and directed the project.
