Abstract:

Ernestine Stodelle, a former member of the Humphrey-Weidman Company, coaches students in Doris Humphrey's Air for the G string, a work for five dancers. Analyzing the choreography section by section, she clarifies and refines its details, with attention to shape, timing, dynamics, and motivation. Key concepts are identified in subtitles. A b&w film of the work, recorded in 1934 with Doris Humphrey as the central dancer, is screened in full at the beginning and end of the coaching session, and excerpts from this film precede each section. A full performance of the work, recorded in 1995, concludes the tape. This tape is not intended as a means of learning the choreography, nor as a replacement for the notation score or a coach. All works by Doris Humphrey are copyrighted, and permission to perform them must be obtained from her son Charles Humphrey Woodford.
