Dance by Letter
by Annie-B Parson
edited by Karinne Keithley Syers

Choreographer Annie-B Parson uses the form of the alphabet book to “speak a word for the uncanny act of dance-making.” Composed with the same virtuosic economy and exactitude as her dances, her abecedary is simultaneously primer, theory, riddle and prompt.

Ich, KürbisGeist and The Secret Death of Puppets
by Sibyl Kempson
illustrated by Amanda Villalobos

Published in conjunction with Big Dance Theater’s staging of Ich, KürbisGeist at the Chocolate Factory Theater in New York City, this is a special volume illustrated and designed by Amanda Villalobos of two of Sibyl Kempson’s forays into the damp, weird soil of ghosts, curses, and the roots and cousins of American language. ICH, KÜRBISGEIST, an agricultural vengeance play for Hallowe’en, is written in a variant of Amer-English so oolde and wheeurd that you need to train your tongue and ear to read it. The three paranormal playlets of THE SECRET DEATH OF PUPPETS are composed in “Fraunch”, English, and some kind of Nordic-Latin homonculus language of the undead. You’ll want to read this to your children.
