Bullfight( Visual )

3 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ms. Clarke's dance films, though rarely seen, are seminal in the history of dance for the camera. The tape features: Dance in the Sun (1953), with Daniel Nagrin In Paris Parks (1954) Bullfight (1955) Moment in Love (1956) both with Anna Sokolow A Visual Diary (1980) with Blondell Cummings. Shirley Clarke began her career as a dancer, having studied and performed with Martha Graham, Anna Sokolow, and Hanya Holm. Her background as a dancer is evident in her body of film and video work, in her use of a wandering, improvisational camera and the sense of movement that pervades even her earliest black & white films. Dancing propelled her into filmmaking and eventually led to an Academy Award for her film Robert Frost: A Lover's Quarrel with the World, the 1962 documentary commissioned by President John F. Kennedy
