Two dances by Doris Humphrey( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 25 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
