Alternative Bodies

French choreographer Anne Collod dived into the history of modern dance to focus on still-pending tensions about bodies, which resulted in a five-part web series. Ted Shawn interested her because of his views–written, lived, and danced–about masculinity and his attention and appropriation of indigenous dances. I feature in episodes 4 and 5 (still grateful for the wonder of Zoom during the pandemic but oh screenshots!).
