I Remember Mary

Excerpt (written in October 1973)
"West Berlin. On a sun-filled morning in October, 1965, Mary opened her Dance Studio door. Slowly, the handle turned, and an inquisitive, lively face peeped in at her Dance Students, practising in class. This was the first time I saw Mary Wigman. At first sight, I was shocked in feeling that I knew her face -- as from some distant, undisclosed, taunting memory. A Lion. A mountain. A turquoise-blue lake. A red flower. All were part of her mystery."

The Way and the Aim of the Dance Teacher and Choreographer

Excerpt (written in July 1967 while a graduating student in the Mary Wigman school)
"The dances themselves have been a way of discovery into myself, first as a human being and dancer, and in time as a teacher and choreographer. The first dance I created, several years ago, concerned the conflict I often felt as a child -- in the pull between good and evil."

Thoughts on Dance

Excerpt (written in October 1973)
"I have turned to the subconscious, the inner force, as creative source -- finding expression in movement and away from my previous active role as Choreographer. That is, away from making active, deliberate insertions into the creation of dance.
The most important changes for me, as leader, was the shifting of creative work from myself, as Choreographer, to those I worked with, the dancers. This enabled the dancers to work together -- to bounce off one another, to intermingle, to interact."
