Speaking of Dancing Oral History Project

Collection Data

Description
Made possible by a generous gift from Anne H. Bass, the Dance Division recorded new interviews from 2009-2012 with prominent figures in the field unified by a focus on the role of interpretation in dancing. Interpretation, defined most simply as the expression through movement of choreographic ideas, offers so many avenues through which to explore the art of dance, illuminating aspects of the creative process, collaborative relationships and the transmission of choreography from creator to dancer and from dancer to audience.
