Martha Graham

I mentioned Martha Graham in the last entry to make a point and in doing so, I wondered if I appeared unappreciative of this icon in the dance world. I am not. I am just ridiculous in my devotion to the legend of Nijinsky and I like to run with it sometimes.

I was going to include this video in the entry I mentioned but didn't want to take away from that dancer's own little article and felt Miss Graham might deserve her own. This is a rare (and too short) video clip of Martha Graham in 1931 performing her then-controversial work The Heretic.
