Archive for the ‘Martha Graham’ Category

Another collection that I worked with at the Library of Congress was the papers of Armgard von Bardeleben. Armgard was a dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company and worked with many well-known modern dancers, including Pearl Lang and Yuriko. Armgard was especially known for her reconstructions of Mary Wigman’s pieces; the masks for Hexentanz can be seen below.
