Summary
Looks inside four of Doris Humphrey's major choreographic works--Water study (1928), The Shakers (1931), With my red fires (1936), and Passacaglia (1938)--with an eye to how directorial strategies applied in recent contemporized stagings in the United States and Europe could work across the modern and contemporary dance genre. [The author] stresses to the reader the need to balance respect for classical works from the modern dance repertory with the necessity for fresh directorial strategies, to balance traditional and creative practices for the re-constructor
