Denishawn : the contributions of American dance pioneers Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary tells the story of one of the least-publicized, yet most influential modern dance companies in America. Founded by Ruth St. Denis and her husband Ted Shawn at the turn of the century, Denishawn became legendary for its unique approach to contemporary dance. St. Denis found fame by incorporating elements of Far and Middle Eastern dances to create abstract pieces called "musical visualizations." With the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts, the couple influenced the formation of true modern dance--Martha Graham was a pupil--while both preserving and disseminating their original choreography and concepts. In 'interview' segments actors portray the couple, while rare film footage of the real St. Denis and Shawn shows them at the peak of their creative talents

Denishawn dances on!( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Denishawn, the revolutionary dance company founded by Ruth St. Denis and her husband Ted Shawn, spent the years between 1919 and 1931 touring extensively and creating some 300 pieces. By combining traditional ballet training with Isadora Duncan's free movement and adding elements of Far and Middle Eastern dances, along with popular symphonic music, St. Denis, Shawn, and the Denishawn company were the creators of the choreography from which American Modern dance evolved. Sadly, little of the rich body of work could be visually preserved at the time. This documentary presents the largest collection of re-created Denishawn dances to date, thus preserving these seminal works of the Mother and Father of American Modern Dance from oblivion. A brief introduction is given for each dance

Kinetic Molpai( Visual )

2 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacob's Pillow has meticulously reconstructed three original performances of the Ted Shawn Men Dancers company (1933-1940). These programs showcase Shawn's artistry as choreographer and dancer, thereby allowing viewers to see in performance his groundbreaking ideas about modern dance. Ancient cultures celebrated Molpai for harvest, rain and sun, fertility, freedom from pestilence and more. Ted Shawn's eleven Molpai also express humanity's longings in themes such as strife, all-embracing love, the sacred, the poetic. The suite's climactic ending takes on the after-life in an exhilarating deification of live itself. The music is by Jess Meeker, Shawn's original composer and pianist
