Choreographing difference the body and identity in contemporary dance by Ann Cooper Albright ( )
11 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and Portuguese and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The choreographies of Bill T. Jones, Cleveland Ballet Dancing Wheels, Zab Maboungou, David Dorfman, Marie Chouinard, Jawole Willa Jo Zollar, and others, have helped establish dance as a crucial discourse of the 90s. These dancers, Ann Cooper Albright argues, are asking the audience to see the body as a source of cultural identity - a physical presence that moves with and through its gendered, racial, and social meanings. Though her articulate and nuanced analysis of contemporary choreography, Albright shows how the dancing body shifts conventions of representation and provides a critical example of the dialectical relationship between cultures and the bodies that inhabited them. As a dancer, feminist, and philosopher, Albright turns to the material experience of bodies, not just the body as a figure or metaphor, to understand how cutural representation becomes embedded in the body. In arguing for the intelligence of bodies, Choreographing Difference is itself a testimonial, giving voice to some important political, moral, and artistic questions of our time."--BOOK JACKET

On improvisation ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Presented as part of The Studies Project, an ongoing series, in conjunction with the first annual New York Improvisation Festival (later called Improvisation Festival/New York). The program opens with an improvisation session (ca. 52 min.), followed by a panel discussion (ca. 86 min.), a solo improvisation by Danny [Lepkoff], and views of an exhibition of his photographs. The panel attempts to identify and explore specific questions and issues within the broad field of dance improvisation. Each panelist discusses his/her approach to improvisation: why they engage in it, what they get out of it, ways of using it (e.g., as an adjunct to teaching technique, as a choreographic tool, in performance). Topics include: the audience's role in improvisation; perceiving form, whether abstract or realistic, in improvisation; dealing with physical contact and the emotional interactions that may arise during the improvisation process; the development of a special mode of thinking as a result of improvisation training; differences and similarities between improvisation and dance in general; presenting improvisation as performance, and dealing with different audience expectations; improvisation as a process comparable to that in music, particularly jazz; expanding the audience for improvisation

Part of The Studies Project, an ongoing series of discussions, performances, and other presentations. The program is preceded by views of Moving words, an art installation created as part of a workshop taught by Ann Cooper Albright. The program opens with performances by the panelists. In the discussion, which begins at ca. 36 min. into the tape, they talk about the process of using language and movement: the interaction of mind and body; different sources and forms of text (e.g., sounds, songs, poetry, journal entries, dialogue); their purposes in using language; the use of improvisation in both language and dance; the interaction of text and movement during the creative process; whether the use of language shifts dance into a different artistic category; and other topics
