From 2002 – 2010, Peggy Baker passed on six of her choreographies to other dancers and filmed the process. A booklet and DVD set for each year of the project have been compiled, containing this footage as well as writing by Peggy and our literary manager, Amy Bowring, and sketches by Jerry Silverberg. The DVDs take the viewer on a self-directed journey into the choreography, allowing students and scholars the opportunity to immerse themselves in one of Peggy Baker’s landmark solo pieces.
Brahms Waltzes (1992) & In a Landscape (1995)
Yang (1998) & Sanctum (1991)
Unfold (2000) & Brute (2000)
