In this self published book, she offers the epic intricacies and beauty of her long artistic career as a dancer, improviser, choreographer, meditation practitioner and educator.

The book weaves stories from her years at the Cunningham Company, Judson Church, Grand Union experiments and the creation of the dance department at the Naropa University with her prolific invention of generative…

The screendance festival I direct has just opened its submission call. To share that here, is the best place to post it in Events?

Thank you!

Thanks for setting up a great forum Marlon!

I would like to hear more from Corinne about how visual familiarity can be used to bootstrap embodied responses to different dance styles/techniques.

I would also like to know more about teaching/developing Underscore and contact-improvisational dance.

Can anyone direct me to online or print resources to help get started thinking about these things?

Marlon I was prompted finally to create my own account today because I spent some time with Suzon Fuks on her Water-wheel interactive platform and wanted to communicate with you. Please make some time to get a guided tour. She has done something really quite interesting...
