Description
Erick Hawkins discusses the characteristics and development of American modern dance, particularly Isadora Duncan's innovations in movement and thought. Four members of his dance company, Nada [Diachenko] Reagan, Beverly Brown, Natalie Richman, and Robert Yohn, demonstrate exercises as Hawkins talks about the technique he has evolved. Two excerpts from Cantilever (choreography: Hawkins, music: Lucia Dlugoszewski) are then performed: a solo by Beverly Brown and a duet by Hawkins and Yohn. Yohn also performs a solo under the opening credits.
