Album artwork for The Choreography of Everyday Life by Annie-B Parson

A renowned choreographer explores the dance of everyday life and reveals that art-making is as natural as walking down the street

In this sparkling, innovative, fully-illustrated work, world-renowned choreographer Annie-B Parson translates the components of dance—time, proximity, space, motion and tone—into text. As we follow Parson through her days—at home, reading, and on her walks down the street—and in and out of conversations on everything from Homer’s Odyssey to feminist art to social protest, she helps us see how everyday movement creates the wider world. Dance, it turns out, is everything and everywhere.

With the insight and verve of a soloist, Parson shows us how art-making is a part of our everyday lives and our political life as we move, together and apart, through space.

PRAISE

“‘Bodies in space.’ I have heard Annie-B use this phrase dozens of times. It occurs to me this phrase refers to choreography and dance, but is also a transposable life philosophy.”
—St. Vincent

“I’m a long time fan of Annie-B’s work. I see in it the quotidian made extraordinary … the familiar made foreign.”
—David Byrne
