Martha Graham : dance on film by Aaron Copland( Visual )

8 editions published between 1961 and 2007 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great artistic forces of the twentieth century, performer, choreographer, and teacher Martha Graham influenced dance worldwide. Criterion presents a sampling of her stunning craft, all collaborations with television arts-programming pioneer Nathan Kroll. A Dancer's World (1957), narrated by Graham herself, is a glimpse into her class work and methodology. Appalachian Spring (1958) and Night Journey (1961) are two complete Graham ballets, the first a celebration of the American pioneer spirit, scored by Aaron Copland, the second a powerfully physical rendering of the Oedipus myth. These are signature Graham works and tributes to the art of the human body."--Container

Isamu Noguchi : sculpture of spaces( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One day. I had a vision: I saw the Earth as sculpture." Isamu Noguchi often said that the space around a thing is as important as the thing itself. This program shows Noguchi turning landscapes into participatory works of art as it follows in dramatic detail the struggle to bring his ideas to fruition at Miami's Bayfront Park and at Moere Numa Park, outside Sapporo. His austere sets for Martha Graham, which helped define modern dance, and his UNESCO garden in Paris, which shaped earth, water, and greenery into a series of multisensory surprises, are featured as well. A brilliant glimpse of an artist at work
Spaces of the mind : Isamu Noguchi's dance designs by Robert Tracy( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using materials that ranged from stone, marble, wood and cast iron to wire, rope, burlap and space itself, Noguchi created carvings, constructions, gardens, architectural projects, playgrounds and, inevitably, theater designs. It was especially the theater of dance - the movement of bodies in relation to forms and space - that Noguchi saw as sculpture brought to life." "This book celebrates Noguchi's contributions to dance with photographs of and commentary on 37 of his set designs, mainly for Martha Graham but also for such other choreographers as George Balanchine, Erick Hawkins, Merce Cunningham, Yuriko, Kei Takei and Ruth Page. The photographs, mainly by Arnold Eagle, Philippe Halsman, Barbara Morgan, Nan Melville and Max Waldman, capture the movement and mood of the dances and their interaction with Noguchi's settings. The commentary, from original and revival program notes, author Robert Tracy and Noguchi himself, recalls the content of each of the dances and the vision behind each of the sculptor's creations."--Jacket

Isamu Noguchi : archaic/modern by Dakin Hart( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noguchi's friend and biographer Dore Ashton described his quest for 'the precise voice that could speak of both the modern and the ancient in the same breath'. That synthesis animates 'Isamu Noguchi: Archaic/Moderrn'. An essay by Dakin Hart traces themes in the artist's sixty-year career - an expansive vision that ranged from landscape art to garden and playground designs, from sculptures featuring planets and outer space to those grappling with the atomic age, and from patented lamps and furniture to modern dance sets and costumes. More than sixty full-color plates highlight the timeless appeal of this thoroughly modern artist."--Dust-jacket
