Summary
Panel discussion after Martha Graham's death on April 1, 1991. Anna Kisselgoff discusses dance before Martha Graham and what Graham did for dance; Pearl Lang talks about what Graham taught her and the differences between ballet and Martha's movements; Terese Capucilli discusses feeling emotions when dancing Graham's choreography and feeling the places in between the contractions and releases; the tension and dissonance of Grahams movement and work ; the critics resistance to Graham's works; the practical value of the soul/emotion in relationship to dance; the element of sexuality in Graham's work; Capucilli's favorite moment of learning and performing her first Graham work, Errand into the Maze; Lang's favorite moment of seeing Graham perform Letter to the World; Kisselgoff talks about the idea of modern and how one becomes modern today; Joseph Campbell being Graham's mentor; and how it is hard for new choreographers to work in the shadow of a giant like Martha Graham.
