About the book: In "Drawing the Surface of Dance," choreographer Annie-B Parson rethinks choreography as dance on paper. Soloing on the page, she draws her dances into new graphic structures calling attention to the visual facts that comprise the materiality of each dance. These drawings serve as maps of her pieces in the aftermath of performance and as considerations of the elements of dance itself.
About the author: ANNIE-B PARSON is a choreographer and artistic director of Big Dance Theater. Parson has also made choreography for rock shows, marching bands, symphonies, movies, museums, objects, augmented reality, and people: David Byrne, David Bowie, St. Vincent, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Wendy Whelan, Laurie Anderson, Nico Muhly, Jonathan Demme, and the Martha Graham Dance Co.
