* This is the name of a book on dance by Gregorio Lambranzi published at Nurem-berg in 1716. The author writes in his preface to the book: "If this work is receivedwith favour, I shall give to the world further new and extraordinary creations toprove the extent of the knowledge I have acquired, and of which there is an abun-dance to impart to others."
The paradox of dream and reality. Chuang-tzu the Taoist philosopher frequentlydreamed that he was a butterfly. Troubled by his dreams, he sought enlightenmentfrom his master, Lao-tzu. The great man mused: "How do you know that at thismoment you are not a butterfly dreaming you are a man."

Music adapted from "Yu Ko" for Ch';n by Mao Min-chung (c. 1280). "Yu Kolt means"Song of the Fisherman." The fisherman here is a symbol of the man who is in har-mony with nature. The dance is inspired by the element of water-a symbolicfeminine mystique of the Orient, particularly that of the court harem and thegoddesses.
