- Scope and Content Note

Scope and Content Note


This collection does not cover the years outside of the 1940s. Moreover, it does not provide a full inventory of the company members including Martha Graham. As this collection is not comprehensive, what it offers is a general appreciation for the Martha Graham dance aesthetic. To that end, the dance company profile warrants particular mention. These press materials discuss how for the first time architecture and sculpture were fused with dance. Additional informational value is continued in the dance analysis for Eye of Anguish. It examines dance for its emotive qualities. The performance materials are equally illuminating. While offering a timeline of activity in the 1940s, they also touch upon contemporary dance issues such as the relationship between dance and music.
