內容簡介top Using the Sky 簡介 In the mid 1990 Deborah Hay work took a new turn. From her early experiments with untrained dancers, and after a decade of focusing on solo work, the choreographer began to explore new grounds of choreographic notation and transmission by working with experienced performers and choreographers. Using the Sky: a dance follows a similar path as Hay previous books?i>Lamb at the Altarand My Body the Buddhisty exploring her unrelenting quest for ways to both define and rethink her choreographic imagery through a broad range of alternately intimate, descriptive, poetic, analytical and often playful engagement with language and writing. This book is a reflection on the experiments that Hay set up for herself and her collaborators, and the ideas she discovered while choreographing four dances,If I Sing to You (2008), No Time to Fly (2010), A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty (2003), and the soloMy Choreographed Body (2014). The works are revisited by unfolding a trove of notes and journal entries, resulting in a dance score in its own right, and providing an insight into Hay extensive legacy and her profound influence on the current conversations in contemporary performance arts.
