Rockstar Touring, 1980s
Added 7th Sep 2021 by Karen Jamieson
The 1980s was a time of great activity for Karen Jamieson Dance, with the formation of the Company itself, international touring and the creation of Sisyphus, a work that would go on to be named one of the choreographic masterworks of the 20th century.
1983 - Sisyphus was created the same year that the Karen Jamieson Dance Company was founded. Of this time, Jamieson writes:
"I had undertaken to try to build a dance company, something I experienced as pitting myself against impossible odds. I was interested in the idea of dance itself as hard labour and the dancers forming the working class of the arts."
