Blood Memory

£9.99

Product description

Martha Graham has been called the most important and influential American artist ever born. Dancer, choreographer, and teacher, she ranks with a handful of twentieth-century artists - Picasso, Stravinsky, Joyce - who broke traditional moulds and created new forms of expression, changing the way we look at the world.
"Blood Memory" is the story of Martha Graham, from a difficult childhood in the American West and her "wild" days in the Greenwich Village Follies to her own company that began with only two students. Her views on dance are interspersed with anecdotes about Charlie Chaplin, Louise Brooks, Indira Gandhi, Margot Fonteyn, Woody Allen, the Pope and Madonna including her collaborative relationships with Isamu Noguchi, Halston, Mikhail Baryshnikov, and Louis Horst.


The book is in very good condition.
