Walter Terry introduces Doris Humphrey and her topic, the art of choreography; Doris Humphrey [with occasional comments and questions from Terry] speaks about the art of choreography including the historical lack of a formulated theory of choreography; ways in which a theory of choreography might be helpful for aspiring choreographers; the spatial, rhythmic, and dynamic principles underlying her own choreography and the vocabulary of gestures; her work Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías [excerpts of which Humphrey, with the assistance of José Limón, demonstrates to illustrate principles she has just outlined]; dynamics and choice of movement [a study in dynamics is demonstrated by Betty (Jones) and Ruth (Currier)]; the process of choice of movement and its relation to choreographic ideas; breath rhythm and metric rhythm; gestures and her work Day on earth [Humphrey, with the assistance of Limón and Lucas Hoving, demonstrates gestures from this dance]; rhythm studies [an excerpt from Humphrey's New dance is performed to percussion accompaniment, following which Terry introduces the second part of the program]. Humphrey speaks about an excerpt from her work Day on earth; Simon [Sadoff] speaks about the music [Aaron Copland's Piano sonata] used for this work; Humphrey speaks about the music [the excerpt is performed to Sadoff's piano accompaniment]; Humphrey speaks about the combination of poetry (by Federico Garcia Lorca) and dance in Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Mejías [an excerpt from this dance is performed solely with musical accompaniment followed by the performance of an excerpt with musical and spoken word accompaniment; recording ends abruptly but continues on streaming file 2]
