Jonathan Burrows writes this book as he would choreograph a dance, while revealing the activities and questions that choreographers share in their practice. The author questions the motivations for creating a show, compositional choices, the role of humor, virtuosity, and dealing with market constraints… By advocating the art of questioning, the English dancer-choreographer invites the reader to find his or her own path and aesthetic process, while discovering the richness and complexity of choreographic activity.
