Creative choice - on whose authority

Main, Lesley ORCID logoORCID: (2013) Creative choice - on whose authority. Choreographic Practices, 4 (1) . pp. 59-74. ISSN 2040-5669 [Article] (doi:10.1386/chor.4.1.59_1)


This article considers issues of legacy and tradition alongside the impact of choice on the choreographic processes involved in restaging modern/contemporary works by Merce Cunningham, Jose Limón and Doris Humphrey. The work of these three choreographers represents a cross-section of staging practices that have evolved over time as a response to the absence of the choreographer. The relevance of these practices in a broader context is that they demonstrate possibilities for choreographers working today whose work is significant to our cultural heritage.
