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.
