The “New Woman” Is a Dancer

Asta Nielsen and Poul Reumert in “Afgrunden” / “The Abyss” (Urban Gad, 1910).

“The ‘New Woman’ Is a Dancer. Asta Nielsen’s screendances as a vehicle for the depiction of the new woman”, Imago, No. 26 (2024). More information available at this link.

“Asta Nielsen’s screendances were either a mirror/document of the concurrent choreographic trends (and so of the new women dancing them) or acts of insubordination (against the patriarchal society), and often both at the same time.”
