Another Telepathic Thing

Big Dance Theater; edited by Karinne Keithley Syers

“Who but Annie-B Parson and Paul Lazar could combine elements of Mark Twain’s story The Mysterious Stranger with transcripts from auditions and create an enigmatic dance theater fable about faith, temptation, and transformation? . . . In Parson and Lazar’s magic realism, surprising events seem normal, comedy and tragedy dance hand in hand, and the trivial assumes profundity. The unknown film for which an actor auditions becomes an emblem of the unfolding tale of life. Are we reading this line right? Should we perhaps pause here?” — Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice

Another Telepathic Thing (2000) is a foundational work by Big Dance Theater, a company whose intuitive, poetic, and layered performances have been described by the New York Times as “deeply brilliant.” This book is the first to render the intersecting dimensions of their finely crafted combinations of text, dance, and sound, and ranges freely in its approaches to documentation in an attempt to generate for the reader something akin to the mesmerizing experience of seeing the company in performance. Alongside the script, itself embedded in a layered typography, drawings by company co-director Annie-B Parson, video stills, and an oral history of the show’s creation complete the volume.
