Two masterpieces of modern choreography With my red fires ; New dance ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chicago born dancer Doris Humphrey danced with the famous Denishawn Company before she and fellow dancer Charles Weidman left in 1928 to set up their own studio and company in New York. Humphrey wanted to experiment with natural movement and to create dance that was indigenous to being American, a drive that remained at the heart of her choreographic explorations throughout her life. The two pieces presented here, With my red fires (1936) and New dance (1935), are parts of a trilogy on the general theme of human relationships

Two dances by Doris Humphrey ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two performances of works by Doris Humphrey by the Limón Dance Company. Ritmo jondo, based on Spanish themes, is performed to an orchestral score by Carlos Surinach based on songs and dances of Spanish gypsies. With its cascading swirls for the women and leaps for the men, Ritmo jondo presents a portrayal of masculine and feminine roles in a traditional culture. Doris Humphrey's most popular dance, Day on earth, reaches into the heart of human experience: love, birth, loss, companionship, death, and continuation, and the meaning and solace of work. Compressed into a small, spare form, a man, his first love, wife, and child tell the poetic story accompanied by Aaron Copland's Piano sonata (1941), played by Michael Cherry
