Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Those who have followed the remarkable career of Meredith Monk for the past 25 years will be surprised to learn that this is the first complete book in English published about this multitalented artist. The welcome compilation brings together significant artist's writings, interviews, reviews, program notes, articles, and essays. Village Voice dance critic Jowitt (New York Univ.) sifted through published and unpublished materials, much from Monk's personal collection, to select items for this anthology. Monk's many sides are reflected in these selections, which assess her work in monolog, dance, video, film, installation art, photography, and music. Monk concisely and eloquently describes her cutting-edge approach: "I work in between the cracks, where the voice starts dancing, where the body starts singing, where theater becomes cinema." Informative and overdue, this title, which launches a new series, is a necessary purchase for theater collections in public and academic libraries.?Joan Stahl, National Museum of American Art, Washington, D.C.

Review

Meredith Monk, avant-garde sorceress of offstage theater, has choreographed such inimitable performances as a pageant at the Guggenheim, a specatcle in a parking lot, and an epic tale at Ellis Island. This collection of writings by Monk herself, along with interviews, reviews, essays, storyboard drawings, and photos, captures the dancer-choreographer on site, 'working between the cracks... where theater becomes cinema.'.

(Village Voice)

" Meredith Monk and Rachel Rosenthal... focus on two of the most influential female performance artists in America. The books include interviews, critical essays, and production notes for specific works, plus extensive introductions by scholars and critics.
