Marianne will read Spotlight excerpts from her book, Limbs Dance Company: Dance for all People. Each reading highlights a work from the Limbs repertoire in the period 1979-1988. These excerpts discuss and describe a work in detail, including the choreographer and original cast, placing the dance in a wider historical context within New Zealand society.
These readings will be presented as a series of videos.
