Item Description...
Kenneth King is one of America's most inventive postmodern choreographers. His dancing has always reflected his interest in language and technology, combining movement with film, machines, lighting and words both spoken and written. King is also conversant in philosophy, and some of his most influential dances have been dedicated to and in dialogue with the work of such philosophers as Susanne K. Langer, Edmund Husserl and Friedrich Nietzsche. Since the 1960s, he has performed his dance to texts both spoken and prerecorded--texts intended to stand separately as literary works.

Writing in Motion spans more than thirty years and is collected here for the first time. It includes essays, performance scripts of King's own work, art criticism, philosophy and cultural commentary. Dense with movement, these writings explode and reconfigure the familiar, crack syntax open, and invent startling new words. Dancing, to King, is "writing in space," and writing is a dance of ideas. Whether referencing Aristotle, Langer, Simone de Beauvoir, MTV, Maurice Blanchot or Marshall McLuhan, King's delightfully lavish prose is very much "in motion."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
a master choreographer's mind  May 4, 2008
Kenneth King was one of the most fluid and dazzlingly inventive choreographers to emerge in the 1960s; his works were always filled with startling juxtapositions and stunning associations, as he seemed able to connect the most disparate extensions of movement into remarkable syntheses. So it comes as no surprise that Kenneth King's writings, filled with his special wit and his immense erudition, should be so multifacted and exuberantly intelligent. Just open the book at any point, and you'll find remarks which will start your own imagination racing with associations and connections. Kenneth King, as a choreographer and a writer, is a treasure, and his book is a stimulating encounter with a great mind with the ability to translate his thoughts into both words and movement.
