The description of this Item
The early 1970’s was an extraordinary and inspirational time to be in New York City. The city was exploding with new ideas, postmodern thought and experimentation in dance. At the same time the pioneers in modern dance and classical ballet were still teaching and creating. It was possible to go and see work new by George Balanchine, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Yvonne Rainer and Twyla Tharp as well as the beginnings of contact improvisation with Steve Paxton and of countless emerging choreographers. Karen Jamieson studied at the schools of Alwin Nikolais, Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham, Alfredo Corvino, and Maggie Black, and toured with the Alwin Nikolais Dance Theatre during this time, as well as studying and performing with Phyllus Lamhut.
