"Hobbies? Oh, we work too hard
to have hobbies," Miss Marion Van
Tuyl replied last night when inter-i
viewed just before rehearsing for the;
concert recital to be given tonight in
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre. "But we
do love travel," her partner, Miss
Bertha Ochsner, quickly supple-
mented.
A diminutive young lady with un--
usual, auburn gold hair, Miss Ochs-
ner is a striking contrast to the
taller, brunette Miss Vn Tuyl. The
distinctive outfit which the former
was wearing was rather in keeping
with her inimitable personality, for
she travelled in a simply cut fur
coat of a shade darker than her
hair, a tiny off the face hat with
a band of the fur framing'her face,
and brown Russian boots.
They are like that. Two decidedly
different types with an indescribable
bond between them that makes
them appear as a perfect entity,
however. In dancing, Miss Ochs-
ner claims that it is their identical
timing sense, which if lost, she ex-
plaihed would render their concert
dancing hopeless.
Capitalization Differences
"You see," she went on, "we are
developing something new in duo
dancing forms. We are not attempt-
ing to do a sister act, wherein two
dancers attempt to look alike and to
dance exactly the same. N, we are
capitalizing on our differences and
yet working them into a harmonious
whole." Miss Ochsner is known for
her witty and amusingly satirical .n-
terpretations, while Miss Van Tuyl's
sophisticated appreciation of con-
temporary music expressed in dy-
namic design has been highly recom-
mended.
Each is reticent about her own
werk, but through Miss Ochsner we
learned that the dance groups under
Miss Van Tuyl at the University of
Chicago are making appreciable ad-
vancements in the field of creative
dancing. The innovation of grop
dancing accompanying the choir in
the university chapel was so well re-
ceived that several similar programs
have since been given.
Miss Ochsner, who has a charm-
ing, irresistible sense of humor, is
working on the dance forms for the
Chicago "Mirror" which Miss Van
Tuyl explained, is comparable to the
Junior Girls Play here. On the
theme of the "'T'hree Blind Mice"
she is creating an "opera booth" that
is delightful in its humor and its
satire, she said.
American Trains Odd
Miss Marion Anderson, who has
arranged the scripts and does the
readings for the dances done to
"Poems from the Orient," finds
American trains and especially the
diners most odd, Miss Van Tuyl re-
marked, for she is from Scotland.
She has been connected with the
Cambridge Repertory theatre there.
"As for Miss Jean Williams," the
dancer exclaimed, "she is invaluable
as our pianist. Why, recently we dis-
covered that we had left the score
for one of our dances behind and
she supplied the music on the mo-
ment entirely from memory. We do
have a hard time," she laughingly
confessed, "remembering all the var-
ious odds and ends we must bring
along."
"I am a great enthusiast of Mar
tha Graham," Miss Van Tuyl said,
"and always look forward to the
times when I can study under her.
She creates about three compositions
a year, for they require much the
same effort as a musical composi-
tion. A dance which requires hun-
dreds of hours preparation must still

Ft

appear as fresh, easy, and above all,
spontaneous. Yet that spontaneity
which is so essential is still so fleet-
ing. There, you must stop me," she
said, "or I shall find myself giving
you a class lecture."
"Oh, Prof. O. J. Campbell is away?
I am keenly disappointed," Miss
Ochsner exclaimed. "I doubt if I
should have ever finished Wisconsin
if it had not been for his help, for
I was flunking Physics so that de-
partment called him to ask if there
was anything at all that I could do.
'Yes, she is fair,' he replied, 'Pass
her'. And they did."
The high point of the program to
be given tonight is in the final group
of eight dances which furnish the
rhythmic accompaniment for the
"Aubdac," a concerto written by
iFrancis Poulenc. The choreography
is the creative work of Miss Van
Tuyl and Miss Ochsner. For the
Ann Arbor performance the piano
arrangement alone will be used.
Three of Hillaire Belloc's delight-
ful "Cautionary Tales" will be given
by Miss Ochsner. Prof. James
O'Neill, of the speech department, is
familiar with the work which Miss
Ochsner did as a student at Wis-
consin in interpretative arts and at
that time gave delightful promise of
its future development in pantomine
and interpretation. Other features
of the program are "Suite" by Loeil-
ly, "Theme and Variations" by Ra-
meau, and "Ann Angel Dance" by
Wolf-Ferrai.
