Kinetic molpai ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Ancient cultures celebrated Molpai for harvest, rain and sun, fertility, freedom from pestilence and more. Ted Shawn's eleven Molpai also express humanity's longings in themes such as strife, all-embracing love, the sacred, the poetic. The suite's climactic ending takes on the after-life in an exhilarating deification of life itself."--Data sheet, leaf [2]
