520 From the most brilliant and audacious choreographer of our
time, the exuberant tale of a young dancer's rise to the
pinnacle of the performing arts world, and the triumphs
and perils of creating work on his own terms--and staying
true to himself. Before Mark Morris became "the most
successful and influential choreographer alive" (The New
York Times), he was a six year-old in Seattle cramming his
feet into Tupperware glasses so that he could practice
walking on pointe. Often the only boy in the dance studio,
he was called a sissy, a term he wore like a badge of
honor. He was unlike anyone else, deeply gifted and
spirited. Moving to New York at nineteen, he arrived to
one of the great booms of dance in America. Audiences in
1976 had the luxury of Merce Cunningham's finest
experiments with time and space, of Twyla Tharp's
virtuosity, and Lucinda Childs's genius. Morris was flat
broke but found a group of likeminded artists that danced
together, travelled together, slept together. No one
wanted to break the spell or miss a thing, because "if you
missed anything, you missed everything." This collective,
led by Morris's fiercely original vision, became the famed
Mark Morris Dance Group. Suddenly, Morris was making a
fast ascent. Celebrated by The New Yorker's critic as one
of the great young talents, an androgynous beauty in the
vein of Michelangelo's David, he and his company had
arrived. Collaborations with the likes of Mikhail
Baryshnikov, Yo-Yo Ma, Lou Harrison, and Howard Hodgkin
followed. And so did controversy: from the circus of his
tenure at La Monnaie in Belgium to his work on the biggest
flop in Broadway history. But through the Reagan-Bush era,
the worst of the AIDS epidemic, through rehearsal
squabbles and backstage intrigues, Morris emerged as one
of the great visionaries of modern dance, a force of
nature with a dedication to beauty and a love of the body,
an artist as joyful as he is provocative. Out Loud is the
bighearted and outspoken story of a man as formidable on
the page as he is on the boards. With unusual candor and
disarming wit, Morris's memoir captures the life of a
performer who broke the mold, a brilliant maverick who
found his home in the collective and liberating world of
music and dance.
