Summary
A compilation of three works dealing with Martha Graham; all are collaborations with television arts-programming pioneer Nathan Kroll. A Dancer's World (1957), narrated by Graham herself, is a glimpse into her class work and methodology. Appalachian Spring (1958) and Night Journey (1961) are two complete Graham ballets. The first is a celebration of the American pioneer spirit , scored by Aaron Copland, and the second is a powerfully physical rendering of the Oedipus myth. Also included are: Martha Graham: the Dancer Revealed, a 1994 documentary produced for PBS's American Masters series; new interviews with six dancers from the films; excerpts from a 1975 filmed technique demonstration by Graham's company, narrated by Graham; and footage of Graham's company from a 1954 European tour
