Original writings and images by David Earle, world-renowned choreographer and master teacher, founder of Toronto Dance Theatre and Dancetheatre David Earle, Member of the Order of Canada.
Michael Caplan's editing and design capture the "scrapbook" feeling of David's journals, and the book is divided into fourteen sections based on themes especially important to David throughout his life: Ecstasy, Me, Life, Love, Eros, the Sacred, Dance, Dancers, Teaching, Creation, Martha Graham, Watchers (the audience), Music, and Art.
Co-produced with Dancetheatre David Earle, and made possible with the assistance of the Ontario Arts Council’s Chalmers Awards Fellowship.
