(p.55) Three The Solo That Isn't a Solo: Ann Carlson's Dances with Animals
On Stage Alone

Janice Ross

University Press of Florida

This is a tribute to and an analysis of Ann Carlson's spontaneous but carefully scripted performances partnered by live animals in which she costumes herself sometimes in everyday apparel, sometimes appears in the nude. Without explicit narrative line, there is often a tale or vocalization voiced. Her works are fraught with a negotiation of social, gender, and performance issues and the interplay between the dancer and the spectator.

Keywords:   Ann Carlson, animals and dance, costume, nudity, vocalization, gender, spectator
