Welcome to Conversations on Dance, our final bonus episode from the Vail Dance Festival with Damian Woetzel, Lil’ Buck, and Janet Eilber. This episode is quite special because we have a guest host, Vail Dance Festival Artistic Director, Damian Woetzel. After we had left, there was one final live event to give audiences an inside look at the artists and the performance. In this episode, Damian is joined by Jookin dancer, Lil’ Buck and Janet Eilber, the Artistic Director of Martha Graham Dance Company. As a side note, Buck is the cousin of this week’s Conversations on Dance guest, Ron Myles. Check out our chat with him in episode 56. The recording starts slightly into the event, so we join them just as Lil’ Buck begins to explain how he became involved in creating a Lamentation Variation with the Martha Graham Dance Company. They go on to have a great conversation on Martha Graham, tap, and collaboration at the Vail Dance Festival and beyond. The first voice you will hear is Damian’s.
This recording was provided to us by the Vail Dance Festival.
