Inquiring Mind / Choreographic Mind
This photograph was taken in Susan's former New York studio, and is the cover image for her book: "A Choreographic Mind: Autobodygraphical Writings."
Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar dove without hesitation into a reshaping of Susan's in-progress work on the new iteration of '208 East Broadway.'

The Choreographer Demonstrates
JJ Tiziou has been shooting "208 East Broadway" in rehearsal and captured this....
Setting aside the ego..."How To Get Started."
Throwing out what he had intended to present, Cage collaborated with Skywalker’s sound engineers in a kind of structured improvisation. First he ordered ten topics randomly. Then he extemporized on the first topic while the engineers recorded his voice. Turning to the second topic, the recording of the first was played back and this mix of two voices was recorded, to be played back with Cage’s third extemporization and so forth resulting by the final topic in a polyphony of ten voices on ten topics.

"Thinking Together" with No Angst
So often dance artists are required to articulate what our dances mean, what it will look like, what all the parts are well before the dance making has even begun. It was a real gift to spend a week with a group of inspiring dance artists to make and share and make and share and make and share and make and share...a week of ‘thinking together.’
