Doris Humphrey (1895-1958), influential choreographer of the 1930s belonged to the second generation of modern dance pioneers whose practice and technique are still taught today. Her reflections on dance-making were published posthumously in a book called “The Art of Making Dances,” a book that is staple reference for compositional theory in dance.
“IndepenDance Forum 1: an instruction manual in low-res” contains our reflections on Humphrey’s book as we try to find the relevance and meaning of our dance practice in contemporary society.
