The Dance Must Follow, Hardback Book

The Dance Must Follow Hardback


The Dance Must Follow is a verse portrait of the artist as dancer, gardener, photographer, and dreamer.

The artist in question is Moses Pendleton, internationally acclaimed founder of the groundbreaking dance troupes Pilobolus and Momix, and a two-time Olympic choreographer.

The poems - the first of which was begun by Pendleton himself then completed by Holland - recount episodes from a thirty-year span of Pendleton's unconventional and creative life in humorous and lyrical rhyming verse. Anyone with an interest in dance, gardening, or creativity - along with all those with a taste for clever narrative poetry - will enjoy this book.

Seventy-five full-color photographs, mostly by Pendleton, present a stunning complement to the poems.

The result is a fascinating and entertaining behind-the-scenes look at the modus operandi of a highly original American artist.
