An Introduction to Physical Introductions, Self Interview


Concept, text, photos and image by Laura Hicks

The dance work portrayed in one of the images used here within was a still from Plateau Effect by the Culberg Ballet. In addition the author recognizes the support of Tanz im August, and the participants, artists and facilitators of the Physical Introductions that took place as part of the Tanz im August festival.

The format was largely inspired by Chrysa Parkinson's video project, "Self Interview on Practice by Chrysa Parkinson." https://vimeo.com/26763244
