Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités


Story: This was a compilation of dances created by Bob Fosse from his days as a nightclub performer through to his final production “Big Deal”. Six of the 27 numbers were repeated from the 1978 production “Dancin’”. There was no narration, and the dances were not presented chronologically, but all centred around the Fosse hallmarks: snapping fingers, bent knees and elbows, turned out legs, gloves and hats.
