Parallel #20

5 Sep

Parallel is a Hungarian annual journal on contemporary dance. It came to my attention through the network which has established itself  via the Dance Critics Association, and in particular through G.E. Dunn, Sandy Kurtz and Leland Windreich.

What makes issue #20 so important is that it features photos of the Nijinsky-Markus connection, and with it, photographs not only of Emilia Markus as a beautiful and formidable theatrical personage, but also as the grandmother of Vaslav Nijinsky’s two daughters by Markus’ daughter Romola.  There are photographs of Tamara Nijinsky as a young girl, a teenager and a young actress, as well as a recent one with her daughter Gingka Gaspers.

It is well worth looking for, even if you can’t read Hungarian.
