Bresciani considers Duncan a dance archaeologist because she studied Greek and Roman mythology and sculpture to uncover and resurrect archetypal physical movements.

The full article is at the Saratogian but doesn't say much more on this Classical connection ...

1. n. an abnormal state or condition resulting from the forced migration from a lengthy Classical education into a profoundly unClassical world; 2. n. a blog about Ancient Greece and Rome compiled by one so afflicted (v. "rogueclassicist"); 3. n. a Classics blog.

Publishing schedule:
Rogueclassicism is updated daily, usually before 7.00 a.m. (Eastern) during the week. Give me a couple of hours to work on my sleep deficit on weekends and holidays, but still expect the page to be updated by 10.00 a.m. at the latest.
