The Six Questions
Acting Technique for Dance Performance
Nagrin, Daniel
Writing in Dance Research Journal, Joellen A. Meglin of Temple University called The Six Questions, "a nerve-hitting, nitty-gritty, accept-nothing-bogus, action-painted account of the dance performance process based on a lifetime of creative performance, choreography, and teaching." Nagrin's second volume focuses on the theory of acting technique for dance performance and includes a workbook of exercises.
Daniel Nagrin, dubbed “the great loner of American dance” by Dance Magazine, has worked with Martha Graham, Helen Tamiris, Mme. Anderson-Ivantzova, and Anna Sokolow. He has danced on Broadway, in film and television, and has toured nationally and internationally as a solo concert artist. He is professor emeritus of dance at Arizona State University.
“In Daniel Nagrin's The Six Questions, we are offered illuminating, well-researched and generously human information out of which great performers are made. Bravo Daniel!”—Bill T. Jones

"In The Six Questions, Nagrin maintains that a command of acting techniques allows the dancer to couple the passion of a body in its motion with the heart and mind of the dancer."—Attitudes and Arabesques

"There is a coherence and elegance, a center, a reassuring return to thematic motifs that takes this work beyond the grab bag of exercises that some practical manuals are."—Joellen A. Meglin, Dance Research Journal
