Martha Clarke



An interview recorded at director/choreographer Martha Clarke's studio in Greenwich Village (which used to be Marcel Duchamp's pad back in the day!).  Maybe not every lady who lunches can drop off her daughter at ballet class and expect a MacArthur Award, but sometimes things just work out that way. Martha talks about the founding of Pilobolus at Dartmouth College (hey it was the 70's!) and her decision to start her own company and become a self-declared benevolent tyrant. Martha and host Will Corwin discuss working with non human actors, and they address the issue of when a dog is mature enough to perform Chekov--10 months is just fine. Also, everything you ever wanted to know about Shakers--it's the project she's now formulating! (39 minutes)
