Editor’s Note

What does choreography look like on the page? The question came out of an email exchange with Aynsley Vandenbroucke, who suggested I see about answering it here.

The idea seemed magical to me: invite intriguing dance artists to make a written score—whatever those two words might mean to each of them—and gather the results in this section.

So, I drew up a wish list of choreographers. To my delight, they pretty much all said yes. And here is the result: Welcome to the Brooklyn Rail’s first-ever On the Page dance festival.
