Books

Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre, Movement, Memory and Metaphor 

Worth, L. (2017) Routledge

Jasmin Vardimon’s Dance Theatre offers an unusual, intimate insight into the devising and training processes of a choreographer in the midst of her practice. Libby Worth and Jasmin Vardimon take a collaborative approach to recording and exploring the working processes of Vardimon and her company, chronicling the development of specific productions rather than offering a single choreographic blueprint.

Focusing on the techniques, strategies and creative activities necessitated by each project, Worth and Vardimon address:

  • The initial ‘triggers’ which lead to research, expansion, and performance;
  • The social, political and psychological content of Vardimon’s work;
  • The relationship between accessibility of content and complexity of ideas;
  • Drawing on texts to enhance and shape a piece of dance work;
  • The editing process, and its inherent messiness;
  • The contribution of a company’s different voices and viewpoints to the development of a production.

Based on extended conversations and interviews, this highly illustrated, full-colour volume is a unique reflection on Jasmin Vardimon’s vibrant, continually developing practice. It is a must-read for students and practitioners of dance and physical theatre.

Justitia: Multidisciplinary Readings of the Work of the Jasmin Vardimon Company

This book offers a series of compelling responses to the Jasmin Vardimon Company’s production of Justitia, a multi-layered, multimedia dance theatre piece. Through an innovative, visually annotated text, which includes the original script by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the book attempts to record the experience of the performance. Also included are nine critical responses from scholars and theatrical practitioners who consider the performance through lenses relating to time, collaboration, writing, confession, and the law.

Edited by Jasmin Vardimon, Sylwia Dobkowska & Paul Johnson. Chapters by Paul Johnson, Nina Stieger, Emily Kasriel, Naom Segal, Libby Worth, Felix Ensslin, Christine Harmar-Brown, Paul Brill, Amanda Stuart Fisher, Royona Mitra & Geoffrey Colman.
