Title 
Dancing on the Edge of Success



Margaret Jenkins, Artistic Director of the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, is one of the most respected choreographers in America having been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, an Irvine Fellowship, the San Francisco Arts Commission Award of Honor, and two Isadora Duncan Awards. She studied at the Juilliard School of Music in New York with Jose Limon and Martha Graham, toured extensively with Twyla Tharp and Sara Rudner, and through her company has continued to teach and mentor for over 30 years. In this digitally re-mastered interview, we get the rare opportunity to look back at this acclaimed professional's influences and experiences in the early days of modern dance in New York, the joys and difficulties of building her own company in San Francisco; also we get a look at her dancers as they rehearse and develop a collaborative piece with Yoko Ono.
