Profile of Mary Wigman, a pioneer of German modern dance. This documentary explores the state of dance in her youth; her training at the Dalcroze School in Hellerau, and with Rudolf Laban in Ascona; her innovative choreography, with its emphasis on the expression of the human condition; the formation of her school, which was to train new generations of German dancers; her tours of the United States, and her influence there; her vicissitudes in Hitler's Germany; her perseverance in handing on her art to young dancers. Wigman herself is seen dancing in several solos: Witch dance [Hexentanz]; Seraphisches Lied (Seraphic song), Pastorale, and Sommerlicher Tanz from Swinging landscape [Schwingende Landschaft]; Totenmal; and Abschied und Dank, which she danced at her last public performance. Her dancers are seen in Wanderung [from Szenen aus einem Tanzdrama]; and her students Harald Kreutzberg, Dore Hoyer, and Susanne Linke are glimpsed in their own choreography

Liebe Hanya : Mary Wigman's letters to Hanya Holm by Mary Wigman ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mary Wigman's groundbreaking choreography and inspired performances in Germany during the 1910s and 1920s placed modern dance on an equal footing with modern painting, theater, and film. Her disciple Hanya Holm took Wigman's aesthetic philosophy to the United States in 1931, effectively adapting it to the American temperament through her teaching and concert works and as a choreographer of Broadway musicals such as Kiss Me, Kate and My Fair Lady. Written between 1920 and 1971, Wigman's letters to Holm bring to life an unusually durable and productive friendship that began as teacher and student then survived a love triangle, business partnership, and long separation by war and politics. A memorable personal account of a century in turmoil, these missives inject immediacy into discussions of Wigman's work within the Third Reich and cast light on Holm's construction of an American identity. Never before published in any language, these letters, introduced by Hedwig Muller and annotated by Claudia Gitelman, are an untapped resource for historians of twentieth-century culture as well as dance."--BOOK JACKET
