Criterion Collection: Martha Graham Dance on Film (1957 - 1961) DVD
One of the great artistic forces of the twentieth century, performer, choreographer, and teacher Martha Graham influenced dance worldwide. Criterion presents a sampling of her stunning craft, all collaborations with television arts-programming pioneer Nathan Kroll.
A Dancer's World (1957: 31 minutes), narrated by Graham herself, is a glimpse into her class work and methodology. Appalachian Spring (1959: 29 minutes) and Night Journey (1961: 33 minutes) are two complete Graham ballets, the first a celebration of the American pioneer spirit, scored by Aaron Copland, the second a powerfully physical rendering of the Oedipus myth.
These are signature Graham works and tributes to the art of the human body.
