the first week of February, 2005, dancers in 3 American cities met
to begin work on a quartet adapted from José Limón's
great work, Choreo-graphic Offering -- the Twin
Cities and New Jersey connected live with coach Risa Steinberg and
4 dancers at The Juilliard School in New York City.
images coming to Juilliard were not adequate for Risa to judge the
quality of the movement across space. So we have reproduced some of
these moments here,* for her -- and you
-- to review.

set-up to make it easier to see each other's work. Click on the underlined

in the exchange, Risa taught "fall and rebound" –– a
key concept in Limón movement.
of the quality of the connection to Julliard, she was unable
to see how the Twin Cities quartet executed her instructions.
is that moment.
there appeared to be about a 3 second delay at Juilliard -- but
very little in NJ and the Twin Cities.
This QT movie gives only an impression of the delay.
(in real life,
voice & movement
were closer together... )
the end of the Exchange, Twin Cities dancers used what they
had learned of Limón movement in a traveling sequence.
"fall & rebound" --
but letting the fall actually happen..
