Appalachian spring: "An American folk tale of a young pioneer, his bride, and a wandering revivalist preacher with a band of followers.

Martha Graham : dance on film( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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), narrated by Graham herself, is a glimpse into her class work and methodology. Appalachian Spring (1958) and Night Journey (1961) 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."--Container
