Dance and myth the world of Jean Erdman( Visual )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erdman's collaborators read like a list of who's who in twentieth-century art. But her most intimate collaboration, that with her husband, the late Joseph Campbell, led her to embrace the mythological dimension in her work. This, coupled with her widely recognized genius for distilling human experience into abstract form, created a repertory of enduring interest to artists, teachers, explorers, and mythmakers of all kinds. Eleven dances from Erdman's historic repertory are performed here by the most authoritative interpreters of her work
