|Abstract: || Martha Graham (1894-1991) was a seminal figure in contemporary dance. Her approach to dance embodied principles of contraction and release which she merged, for the first time in dance, with architecture and sculpture on the stage. This collection of her dance company records represents only a small piece of that legacy which still continues today. |
