The Green Table

The Green Table is the masterpiece of German choreographer Kurt Jooss, and his most popular work, depicting the futility of peace negotiations of the 1930s. It was the first play to be fully notated using kinetography Laban (Labanotation). It is in the repertoire of ballet companies worldwide, where it has been staged by Jooss himself.
Since his death in 1979, his daughter Anna Markard has been responsible for stagings of the work.

Famous quotes containing the words table and/or green:

    ... So damn your food and damn your wines,
    Your twisted loaves and twisting vines,
    Your table d’hôte, your à la carte,
    . . . .
    From now on you can keep the lot.
    Take every single thing you’ve got,
    Your land, your wealth, your men, your dames,
    Your dream of independent power,
    And dear old Konrad Adenauer,
    And stick them up your Eiffel Tower.
    Anthony Jay (b. 1930)
