On choreography: "Choreography is a negotiation with the patterns your body is thinking." On rules: "Try breaking the rules on a need to break the rules basis." A Choreographer's Handbook invites the reader to investigate how and why to make a dance performance. In an inspiring and unusually empowering sequence of stories, ideas and paradoxes, internationally renowned dancer, choreographer and teacher Jonathan Burrows explains how it is possible to navigate a course through this complex process. It is a stunning reflection on a personal practice and professional journey, and draws upon five years of workshop discussions, led by Burrows. Burrows open and honest prose gives the reader access to a range of exercises, meditations, principles and ideas on choreography that allow artists and dance-makers to find their own aesthetic process. It is a book for anyone interested in making performance, at whatever level and in whichever style.
