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, Londondanceand Forum Modernes Theater.
