First paperback printing. 2004 Large Softcover. 288 pp. 9 7/8 x 9 7/8. Dramatically candid conversations about the creative life with 59 leading American choreographers. Eichenbaum's firsthand knowledge of dance, her passion for dancing and the people who do it, and her appreciation of the minutiae of lives, both everyday and Olympian, all combine to open windows onto the soul of dance and the lives of those who helped to define and shape the art in the 20th century.—Jennifer Dunning, dance critic, New York Times. Where does the impulse to create originate? What is the choreographer's responsibility to the dancers, the audience, the self? These are just a few of the probing questions that Rose Eichenbaum asks some of America's most celebrated choreographers in her quest to understand the secrets of creativity. A collection of photographic portraits and vignettes based on intimate conversations, Masters of Movement is a rare journey into the world of dance. Whether through her lens—David Parsons, in a business suit, standing on the branch of a Central Park tree; Anna Halprin lying naked at the base of a giant California redwood—or through the revelations from her thoughtful interviews, Eichenbaum captures the essential character of her subjects, who have confided the experiences and emotions that have driven their creativity and defined their styles. 118 duotones.
