Martha Graham : dance on film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great artistic forces of the twentieth century, performer, choreographer, and teacher Martha Graham influenced dance worldwide. Criterion presents a sampling of her stunning craft, all collaborations with television arts-programming pioneer Nathan Kroll. A Dancer's World (1957), narrated by Graham herself, is a glimpse into her class work and methodology. Appalachian Spring (1958) and Night Journey (1961) are two complete Graham ballets, the first a celebration of the American pioneer spirit, scored by Aaron Copland, the second a powerfully physical rendering of the Oedipus myth. These are signature Graham works and tributes to the art of the human body."--Container

Are there practical ways to cope with it? What is hate doing to us? More importantly, what does hate do for us? Bill Moyers seeks to answer these questions. His search takes him around the world where he talks to philosophers and historians, authors and activists to those whose lives have been shaped by hate and those who have dedicated their lives to going beyond it..." -- Back of container
