Hay, Deborah (1993)

The CNDO transcripts

12 Monographs in e-book form. Average length: 20 pages each.

Over twelve months, through 1991 and 1992, the Center for New Dance Development (CNDO), in Arnhem, The Netherlands, in collaboration with the Arts Documentation Unit, U.K., undertook to interview the contemporary dancers and related artists who were teaching residencies at the Centre during that time. In all, some 36 artists from Europe, the United States and Canada, were asked to describe their work and its current development. The intention was to provide a snap-shot of some of the concerns of a generation of dancers in the early 1990s. From this material, separate monographs by dancers and related artists have been produced. (1993)
