MoMA Dance is a new series of monographs exploring dance makers in the twenty-first century. Each volume focuses on a single contemporary choreographer, presenting a rich collection of newly commissioned texts along with a definitive catalogue of the artist’s projects. Accessible, informative, and inspiring, they are indispensible guides to contemporary dance for fans and scholars alike. Born in Manchester, England, Sarah Michelson has lived and worked in New York since 1991, where she has become a fixture of the downtown dance community. Her works are known for their athleticism, rigor, beauty, and attention to architectural space. Her choreography, she has written, “risks rejection” and “denies safety”; deliberately difficult, it inspires both adoration and debate. The book-featuring original essays, an interview with Michelson, and a cultural history of her oeuvre written by her peers-explores the concepts and content of the choreographer’s work, bringing it vividly to life.
