Solitary Song : An Autobiography, Hardback Book

Solitary Song : An Autobiography Hardback


In this well-illustrated work, Pauline Koner "traces the course" of her remarkable career from her days as a student of Michel Fokine in the 1920s, through further studies with Angel Cansino and the brilliantly influential Michio Ito, to a period as a dance soloist before World War II that make her reputation.

After the war she entered a productive collaboration with Doris Humphrey, and then began the epochal performances with Jose Limon.

She continued to perform until 1972, and her influence as a teacher and choreographer is still widely felt.

Her book is an instructive and charming chronicle of this remarkable career, as well as a record of performances and interpretations that have gone far to mold modern dance into its present state of grace.
