Abstract:

A dancer's world: Martha Graham and the Martha Graham Dance Company perform a series of short dances, interspersed with commentary by Graham and writer Leroy Leatherman. In this 30-minute Peabody Award-winning film, Miss Graham and her company demonstrate the challenge and beauty of expression through movement. Developed during her European and Asian tours, the format of the film -- "exercises de style", as the French call it -- takes us into her dressing room, the studio, and the spirit of dance itself.

Night journey: "Martha Graham's retelling of the legend of Oedipus, danced by Miss Graham as Jocasta, Paul Taylor as Tiresias, and Bertram Ross as Oedipus"--Container.

Appalachian spring: "An American folk tale of a young pioneer, his bride, and a wandering revivalist preacher with a band of followers. The dance tells of the couple's wedding, the building of their home, the preacher's dire sermon, and the woman's gentle blessing as the couple begins a life in the wilderness"--Container.
