Abstract:

Pauline Koner (d. 2001) discusses the principles of dance she learned while studying ballet with Michel Fokine ; studying and touring with Japanese dancer Michio Ito, a precursor of modern dance ; her partnership with Yeichi Nimura ; becoming a solo performer ; her visits to Israel and Russia. Recalling her association with Doris Humphrey and José Limón, she describes her solo Voice in the wilderness, created with Humphrey as artistic adviser ; and reminisces about dancing as Limón's partner in Humphrey's The story of mankind, which led to an invitation to create the title role in Limón's La Malinche. She talks about dancing as guest artist with the José Limón Dance Company in Limón's There is a time and other works. Activities after her departure from the Limón company included the creation of the solo Solitary song (later reworked as a group piece), and her development of a class in stage performance for dancers. The interview is interspersed with performance excerpts and footage of a class taught by Koner.
