Profile of dancer-choreographer Karole Armitage, much of it in her own words. The program begins with a discussion of her evening-length work The predators' ball: hucksters of the soul, which she presented in several versions between 1994 and 1996. Looking back upon her career, Armitage describes her beginnings as a ballet dancer, and her discovery of the work of Merce Cunningham, whose company she joined. She discusses her own choreography and its aims, her establishment of her own company in the 1980s, her move to France, and her appointment to the directorship of MaggioDanza in Florence, and compares audience and critical reactions to her innovations in the U.S. and Europe. Additional insights are offered by her friend Joan Juliet Buck; dance historian Sally Sommer; Armitage's husband, the painter David Salle; and fashion designer Christian Lacroix.
