Finding Oral Histories

If you are looking for information about an Australian choreographer, the best place to start looking is in the Oral History collection of the National Library of Australia. They have a collection of interviews done with prominent Australian dancers and choreographers which you can request, via your teacher, on interlibrary loan.  Some may be accessed digitally online.

Please note that in many instances, you will have to obtain the permission of the interviewee to access the interview. There is a PDF file of the form below.

The Australia Dancing portal has a list of available oral histories.
