“This book, which celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Art of Movement Studio, is a collection of articles by former students and members of staff. Some are profound, others light-hearted, but all of them serve to indicate the varied activities carried on in the field of the art of movement in 1971.
The book is compiled in conjunction with an exhibition of work by other former students, which can be seen at the Studio during the anniversary celebration week. Examples of paintings, sculptures, theatre work, kinetography and studies in aspects of psychology will be on show in the exhibition. The thanks of the Old Students’ Association go to all those who have contributed time and energy to these endeavors.
It is hoped that the next 25 years will see many developments in widening and deepening the work of the art of movement.” (from the Forward by Geraldine Stephenson)
