<EM>Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre</EM> offers an unusual, intimate insight into the devising and training processes of a choreographer in the midst of her practice. Libby Worth and Jasmin Vardimon take a collaborative approach to recording and exploring the working processes of Vardimon and her company, chronicling the development of specific productions rather than offering a single choreographic blueprint.
Focusing on the techniques, strategies and creative activities necessitated by each project, Worth and Vardimon address:
<LI>The initial ‘triggers’ which lead to research, expansion, and performance;</LI>
<LI>The social, political and psychological content of Vardimon’s work;</LI>
<LI>The relationship between accessibility of content and complexity of ideas;</LI>
<LI>Drawing on texts to enhance and shape a piece of dance work;</LI>
<LI>The editing process, and its inherent messiness;</LI>
<LI>The contribution of a company’s different voices and viewpoints to the development of a production.</LI>
Based on extended conversations and interviews, this highly illustrated, full -colour volume is a unique reflection on Jasmin Vardimon’s vibrant, continually developing practice. It is a must-read for students and practitioners of dance and physical theatre.
