: Dance 2wice is a collection of unique photographic essays dedicated to contemporary dance, distilled from the pages of the celebrated interdisciplinary arts journal 2wice. The iconic images explore the dynamic dialogue between performance and photography, bringing together the top talent of some the world's most respected dancers, choreographers, and photographers. In these carefully conceived collaborations, the transitory art of such key contemporary dance figures as Merce Cunningham, Mark Morris, Paul Taylor and Karole Armitage is captured vividly: the pages become the stage for beautifully conceived performances, intriguing ideas, and intimate portraits. Founded in 1997, 2wice magazine is a publication that evolved out of the magazine Dance Ink, now no longer published. The publication, edited by New York-based founder and arts patron Patsy Tarr and designed and co-edited by Pentagram designer Abbott Miller, has been honoured with numerous awards and was named 'Magazine of the Year' by the Society of Publication Designers. Each issue focuses on a specific theme, but the broad range of material brought together in its pages shares a focus on issues of the body: its movement, its fashions, and the representations we create of ourselves and others. Dance 2wice is the most cutting-edge and innovative artistic collaboration of its sort: it escapes all conventions of function and form to create a striking tour de force of intellectual, visual and physical energy.
