As this book shows, Ballet Suédois’ experiments with and their combination of different genres was typical of the third decade of the 20th century.

In their short period of existence the Ballets Suédois tried to incorporate all the new trends of their time. As Pascale De Groote shows, their experiments with and the combination of different genres was typical of the third decade of the 20th century. The need for innovation caused artists to explore new ideas. They discovered a range of new possibilities: borders were often crossed and artists explored each other’s territory. The Ballets Suédois participated actively in all this ferment. Despite their limited duration, their story paints a
fascinating picture of an exciting chapter in European cultural history.



PASCALE DE GROOTE is Principle at Royal Conservatory in Artesis Academy at University of Antwerp.
