Geoffrey Holder, a Guggenheim Award-winning painter and the Tony Award- winning director and designer of the Broadway musical The Wiz, is also a well- respected choreographer and set and costume designer, for his own company as well as for the Dance Theater of Harlem and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. As readers learn in this exuberant portrait, this transplanted Trinidadian is also a man with a compelling story to tell about his experiences as an artist and outsider who found success in America.

Jennifer Dunning, a dance critic at the New York Times, provides an appreciation of this multitalented artist and his many contributions to the arts community, while the illustrations reveal his wide-ranging creativity and exciting social life in Paris, New York, and the Caribbean.
250 illustrations, 150 in full color, 224 pages, 101/4 x 121/2"

About the Author:

Jennifer Dunning is a dance critic for the New York Times.

From Library Journal:

Geoffrey Holder is arguably one of the most recognized personalities in the theater world, with nearly 50 years in the United States as an award-winning dancer, choreographer, costume designer, director, actor, commercial pitchman (for the "uncola"), painter, and writer. New York Times dance critic Dunning has produced a loving, lavish tribute to this great artist, combining Holder's reminiscences of everyone from Josephine Baker to Helen Hayes with 250 illustrations of his work, 150 in full vibrant color. Those who know only Holder the actor will be pleasantly surprised to discover that he has a whole other career as a painter whose work has been honored with a Guggenheim Award. The high quality of the illustrations and the absence of any full-length Holder biography on the market makes this oversized book essential for all art, performing arts, and African American studies collections.
