In an unprecedented combination of autobiographical cultural criticism and performance analysis, internationally recognized dancer, dance-maker, and musician Eva Gholson presents a personal and theoretical account of music and dance collaboration. In very lively and readable prose, Professor Gholson elucidates how to develop a highly individualistic yet systematic course of discovery as a choreographer dedicated to the use of music. The book offers hands-on approaches for analyzing scores as well as problem-solving questions of form. Gholson analyzes the musical and choreographic structure of her dances within the context of changing political ideals for black artistry in late twentieth century performing arts. Gholson's insights bring new meaning to the words "teaching by example" in the practical and theoretical study of performance. Blending personal insights with detailed compositional analyses, this unique book will resonate with scholars and students in Cultural, Performance, and African Studies.
