er to create it, he traveled to Africa in search of dancers and a new relationship to the stage.The intimate, keenly observed passages in this artist's journal give us extraordinary insights on the process of dance-making -- from the discovery of specific movements to the sometimes uneasy relationships between the dancers. Aeschylus' Oresteia forms the subtext of the dance: Lemon subtly portrays the exiled son of his mother Africa.

The book beautifully documents Lemon's ability to negotiate different dance traditions without either erasing or cementing them.
