Nina Simone, Dance Theater and the Shapes of Women contains the background, process, involvement and discoveries made during the creation and production of the dance work Morning of My Life. The issues of self value and the process of personal change dealt with in Morning of My Life are brought to light and openly detailed through movement description. This dance work developed from the unique experiences of the choreographer discovering an understanding of femininity through the music of Nina Simone. From an artistic stand point, the creation of this work examined how thoroughly dance communicates to general audiences connecting to art forms in a world of multimedia and sensory overload
