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.
