Scope and arrangement
The Angene Feves papers contain files from her time as a performer and dance director for the Consortium Antiquum, as well as materials that reflect her career as a performer, historian, choreographer, and teacher.
The Consortium Antiquum files contain bylaws, minutes, member lists, and grant materials. Also included are detailed performance notes and programs relating to various performances from 1973 to 1986. Of note are the photographs and slides, both portrait and candid, of Consortium dancers in costume performing, primarily Angene Feves and Charles Perrier.
Feves' other files contain a variety of materials, ranging from handwritten dance reconstructions and original choreography, correspondence with other notable dance historians including Ingrid Brainard and Sandra Hammond, contracts, and personal clippings, reviews and programs. Of interest in these files are the contracts - which include correspondence negotiating Feves' many trips throughout the country to perform and teach workshops, and her correspondence, which details workshop preparations, conference negotiations, and locating appropriate artists, musicians, and dancers for proper early dance performance.
