A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

An autobiography of Martha Graham’s protoge who went on to work with every major Broadway choreographer of the 1930s and 40s. It provides invaluable insights into Graham’s teaching while telling anecdotes about working on the Great White Way.

From the Inside Flap:

"A fascinating glimpse of life inside Graham’s charmed circle, and a moving record of one dancer’s determined pursuit of a career."—Kirkus Reviews

"Bird is a storyteller gifted with vivid powers of observation and a witty and often wicked humor. . . . There is as much here for the dance scholar as for those who simply love a good story, a feat that Bird executes with impressive grace."—Jennifer Dunning, dance critic, New York Times

"A rare gift, a performer’s reminiscence that situates a career into a wider cultural context."—Stagebill

"An invaluable book for professionals, students, and those who are eager to know about the awesome dimensions of Martha Graham."—Backstage

"The most interesting inside account of the development of early modern dance I have had the good fortune to read."—Sondra Fraleigh, author of Dance and the Lived Body

Dorothy Bird (1912–1996) was a hand-picked member of Martha Graham’s dance troupe from 1930 to 1937. Following a decade-long career on Broadway—during which time she worked with Balanchine, Helen Tamiris, Jerome Robbins, and other major choreographers—she retired from the stage and taught dance to generations of students on Long Island. Joyce Greenberg, who studied with Bird, lives in upstate New York.
