Throwing the Body into the Fight is the first English-language publication dedicated to the German choreographer Raimund Hoghe. Curated and edited by Mary Kate Connolly, the book operates as a collage, drawing together a variety of international voices to create a fragmented portrait of the artist. Lavishly illustrated with photographs by Rosa Frank, who has collaborated closely with Hoghe for two decades, this book will be welcomed by all who admire a man described by the New York Times—in its review of Hoghe’s 2012 “Pas de Deux” with Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno—as “a lover of romance and beautiful things.”

Mary Kate Connolly is a freelance writer who has written on performance for a variety of publications in the United Kingdom and abroad, including Dance Theatre Journal, RealTime, Londondance, and Forum Modernes Theater.
