In conversation with Geoffrey Colman (Head of Acting at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), acclaimed choreographer Jasmin Vardimon and Libby Worth, Senior Lecturer in Theatre Practice at The Royal Holloway University of London, discuss the work with author and subject. Together they share their insights into the pair’s collaboration and the complex writing process they undertook to bring the book to fruition. They also discuss Vardimon’s vibrant, evolving choreographic practice from the seeds of an idea through to the completion of a work. What emerges is a lively and multi-layered reflection on the devising and training processes of a choreographer in the midst of her practice.

A leading force in British dance theatre for nearly twenty years, Jasmin Vardimon has built a reputation for challenging, exciting and visually stunning dance. Formed in 1997, Jasmin Vardimon Company enjoys critical acclaim and sell-out performances all over the world.

Libby Worth is a movement practitioner and scholar with research interests in dance theatre, site specific performance and performer training.

In addition to his work at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Geoffrey Colman has worked alongside Vardimon as acting coach on her works Justitia, Park and Pinocchio.

This new book provides an excellent addition to the educational resources available from the company suitable for students, teachers and practitioners.
