Summary: "A Choreographic Mind began to take shape as I wrote out my thoughts in an attempt to make sense of the wall of difference I encountered on a move to Europe when I was in my forties. My efforts to untangle the assumptions I saw around me necessitated a backward look into the origins of my own assumptions and influences, interior and exterior, nature and nurture. The book begins as I search my childscape for memories that shed light on the first inklings of my choreographic mind, and broadens out to life in the studio and then to the larger world of dance and its potentialities. These essays draw on my own life and experience to create a context for the reader and further the emphasis on what many of my students have termed a practical philosophy of choreographic thought. It is a subjective account of how dance making brings the maker, and ideally the viewer, to understandings of self and the body{u2019}s mind"--Back cover.
