Abstract

The Artistic Collaboration Resulting in the Creation of the Ballet Parade is an examination of the development of Parade for the Ballet Russe. It describes the process by which Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, and Leonide Massine collaborated under the guidance of Serge Diaghilev. The collaborators' objective was to create a work of "total art" which gave equal attention to visual art, music, and dance. The medium of dance is the primary focus for examination in this thesis, but it cannot be understood without looking at the work of each of the collaborators as well as the political and cultural climate of Paris in 1917. Cocteau's scenario, Picasso's Cubist designs, and Satie's innovative music, along with Massine's choreographic invention, resulted in this work of total art.
