Gravity by Steve Paxton

"In this elegant pocket-sized book, dancer Steve Paxton traces a lifetime in the company of gravity. In pithy prose essays, he brings us the memory of his first flight, a meditation on walking, pondering on the conditions of life, and a dream of dancing that make up pieces of a puzzle. He reveals the physical force that affects us all and underpins our personal stories. Paxton tweaks what is at the edge of consciousness and celebrates the potentiality of our senses to enter the dance." - Contact Quarterly
