About "First Comes the Movement"

Lena_Stefensson300-Foto_Anna_Ukkonen.jpgLena Stefenson, Associate Professor in Mime-acting at Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts), has written a reflective textbook on the art of choreographing / directing movement-based performing arts. She has written on the basis of her own experiences as a choreographing director with examples from various set work and her own and others' teaching. If you work movement-based, how do you start? How can one work with a theme, with a story? What is elevation?

The book is aimed at anyone who is, or wants to be, a choreographing director or actor in the movement-based performing arts with forms such as dance, mime and circus. It is also aimed at the person who generally wants to make his / her stage-work more physical.

The book is available as an artistic development project (KU) with the support of Uniarts research department and the department of acting.
