From Automatism to Modern Dance

From Automatism to Modern Dance
Françoise Sullivan with Franziska Boas in New York

by Allana Lindgren
Françoise Sullivan's desire to discover dance and life beyond the borders of her Montreal home shows that the longing for a "global acceptance of life and its riches" was an Automatist tenet by which she lived. As evidenced in her early choreography, and in her essay, "Dance and Hope", in 1946 Sullivan immersed herself in New York's Franziska Boas Dance Group with an open-minded curiosity and desire for self-discovery.
