Summary

Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre offers an unusual, intimate insight into the devising and training processes of a choreographer in the midst of her practice. Libby Worth and Jasmin Vardimon take a collaborative approach to recording and exploring the working processes of Vardimon and her company, chronicling the development of specific productions rather than offering a single choreographic blueprint.

Focusing on the techniques, strategies and creative activities necessitated by each project, Worth and Vardimon address:

  • The initial ‘triggers’ which lead to research, expansion, and performance;
  • The social, political and psychological content of Vardimon’s work;
  • The relationship between accessibility of content and complexity of ideas;
  • Drawing on texts to enhance and shape a piece of dance work;
  • The editing process, and its inherent messiness;
  • The contribution of a company’s different voices and viewpoints to the development of a production.

Based on extended conversations and interviews, this highly illustrated, full -colour volume is a unique reflection on Jasmin Vardimon’s vibrant, continually developing practice. It is a must-read for students and practitioners of dance and physical theatre.
