Martha Graham: Gender & the Haunting of a Dance Pioneer

Martha Graham: Gender & the Haunting of a Dance Pioneer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her heyday, Martha Graham’s name was internationally recognized within the modern dance world, and though trends in choreography continue to change, her status in dance still inspires regard. In this, the first extended feminist look at this modern dance pioneer, Victoria Thoms explores the cult of Graham and her dancing through a feminist lens that exposes the gendered meaning behind much of her work. Thoms synthesizes a diverse archive of material on Graham from films, photographs, memoir, and critique in order to uniquely highlight her contribution to the dance world and arts culture in general.
 

About the Author

Victoria Thoms is a senior lecturer in dance practice and performance at the University of Wolverhampton, UK.
