Newly available documents about Alexander Technique developments from the 1940s - 1980s: Part 2
Amanda Cole, an Australian academic researcher, writer and performer, is the author of "Marjorie Barstow and the Alexander Technique - Critical Thinking in Performing Arts Pedagogy." She is also a long time student of both the classic and Barstow-inspired versions of the Technique. She draws on multiple sources, including a significant collection of written correspondence between F. M. Alexander, Marjorie Barstow, Frank Pierce Jones and Professor John Dewey that provides a new, and very different, perspective on the history of the Alexander Technique.
This is the first in a series of her conversations with Robert Rickover, an Alexander Technique teacher in Omaha, Nebraska. This episode provides an overview of her findings. Subsequent videos will go into greater detail.
