On stage alone : soloists and the modern dance canon ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Soloists ignited the modern dance movement and have been a source of its constant renewal. Pioneering dancers such as Loïe Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. Denis, and Maud Allan embodied the abstraction and individuality of the larger modernist movement while making astounding contributions to their art. Nevertheless, solo dancers have received far less attention in the literature than have performers and choreographers associated with large companies. In On Stage Alone, editors Claudia Gitelman and Barbara Palfy take an international approach to the solo dance performance. The essays in this standout volume broaden the dance canon by bringing to light modern dance soloists from Europe, Asia, and the Americas who have shaped significant, sustained careers by performing full programs of their own choreography. Featuring in-depth examinations of the work of artists such as Michio Ito, Daniel Nagrin, Ann Carlson, and many others, On Stage Alone reveals the many contributions made by daring solo dancers from the dawn of the twentieth century through today. In doing so, it explores many important statements these soloists made regarding topics such as freedom, personal space, individuality, and gender in the modern era"--Publisher's website
Dancing with principle : Hanya Holm in Colorado, 1941-1983 by Claudia Gitelman ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With exhortations to understand what they were doing and stick with their principles, Holm helped generations of students become artists. As Gitelman notes, many of Holm's students went on to work in national and regional dance companies, and some achieved international status as choreographers and company directors. Fascinated by her own work with Hanya Holm in Colorado, both as a student and as one of Holm's assistants, Gitelman has examined archives held by the Holm family and interviewed more than fifty of Holm's students, associates, and observers of the program

Liebe Hanya : Mary Wigman's letters to Hanya Holm by Mary Wigman ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 237 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
