ummm.... this looks calculated, coming from me... but shouldn't someone be shooting Markard setting Jooss works, the way the Balanchine Foundation has been doing for his work. Speaking of which, why isn't the Tudor estate doing the same?
PBS ran a Great Performances of the Joffrey GT, which included some juicy archival images of Jooss and Laban -- this is the tape I have and I don't think it's commercially available.
And of course, someone should be filming all these coaching sessions. And when I win the lottery, I will donate all my money for just that thing...!
Paul, I'm not quibbling about the value of direct contact with generative artists, or, in this case, next-to-the-generative artist. But since Markard herself liked what she saw in Ohio, I'm sad that she doesn't want to continue that process.
