Abstract:

This documentary tells the story of one of the least-publicized, yet most influential modern dance companies in America. Founded by Ruth St. Denis and her husband Ted Shawn at the turn of the century, Denishawn became legendary for its unique approach to contemporary dance. St. Denis found fame by incorporating elements of Far and Middle Eastern dances to create abstract pieces called "musical visualizations." With the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts, the couple influenced the formation of true modern dance--Martha Graham was a pupil--while both preserving and disseminating their original choreography and concepts. In 'interview' segments actors portray the couple, while rare film footage of the real St. Denis and Shawn shows them at the peak of their creative talents.
