Description - Speaking of Dance by Joyce Morgenroth

Speaking of Dance tells the story of how choreographers make their dances in their own words. The author has interviewed twelve distinguished and innovative American choreographers and presents in-depth conversations that focus specifically on the art of dance. The interviewees include Merce Cunningham, Meredith Monk, Bill T. Jones, Mark Morris, and Trisha Brown. The questions bring to light these masters' sources, motivations, and processes; their emotional vicissitudes; and their practical concerns in making dances. Taken cumulatively, their commentaries expose historical trends, yet their individual creative perspectives reveal a striking variety of concerns.
