Abstract

Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre offers an unusual, intimate insight into the devising and training processes of a choreographer in the midst of her practice. Libby Worth and Jasmin Vardimon take a collaborative approach to recording and exploring Vardimon’s working processes and those of her company, chronicling the development of specific productions including 7734, Justitia, and Yesterday, rather than offering a single choreographic blueprint.

This highly illustrated, full-colour volume focuses on the techniques, strategies and creative activities necessitated by each project, addressing:
• the initial 'seeds' of ideas which lead to locations, research and task-based rehearsals
• the social, political and psychological content of Vardimon’s work
• the relationship between accessibility of content and complexity of ideas
• the layering process as dance, theatre, media, script, music and design are drawn into dynamic interaction
• the contribution of an international company’s different voices and viewpoints to the development of a production
• the editing process, and its inherent messiness.

Based on extended conversations and interviews, Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre is a lively and multi-layered reflection on Vardimon’s vibrant, evolving choreographic practice.
