Speaking through a Japanese interpreter, Manuel Alum discusses the formative influences on his career as dancer and choreographer, including his Puerto Rican background, his childhood attraction to flying and risk-taking, and his initial desire to become a painter. He talks about Sybil Shearer, who inspired him to become a dancer; his studies at the Graham school in New York prior to joining the Paul Sanasardo company as principal dancer, choreographer, and assistant artistic director; and his decision to form his own company. He then shares his thoughts on the nature of dance and its appeal, his approach to choreography, and his artistic goals. The dance demonstration which followed is not included on this tape
