Jeff Slayton presents Viola's remarkable teaching and choreographic style with the same clarity as those classes: Embellishments are unnecessary to the receptive mind. Read and be transported to a time before dancers "competed" like gladiators for the American public. The drive was not fame or popularity, but moving the observer into an alternate perspective. Viola Farber made dancers and a kind of dancing that was unique then and perhaps, still is now.
This book should be read by any serious student of dance, music, art and theater. This book should be read by anyone curious about avant garde trends in culture. I am grateful to have experienced it firsthand and to Mr. Slayton for returning them to us in The Prickly Rose.
