Dance and myth : the world of Jean Erdman( Visual )

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

They discuss the special characteristics of street dancing: its element of competition and fierce pride in originality, its dependence on the dancers' own inventiveness, its emphasis on the individual's passion or spirit, and its role as a voice of the community. The dancers also comment upon their interaction with professional dancers such as ballet dancer Ann Marie de Angelo, who has incorporated street dancing into her works. Clemente is seen performing in an excerpt from de Angelo's Paradise; other dance excerpts show clips from films and music videos, and movement demonstrations by the three guests
