These dramatic 1929 solos, performed together, represent a statement about the early development of modern dance and the growth of the individual. Humphrey's notes describe the Call to a new vision followed by a shriving of the old body and old ideas through the purification of fire.
THE DORIS HUMPHREY LEGACY series of documentaries gives behind-the-scenes analysis of each movement, phrase-by-phrase, of five Doris Humphrey works: Air for the G String, The Call/Breath of Fire, The Shakers, Two Ecstatic Themes, and Water Study. Ernestine Stodelle, an original member of the Humphrey-Weidman Company,
provides meticulous, inspiring coaching and commentary for each dance. Every video concludes with a complete performance of the work. The series is ideal for gaining a deep understanding of each dance for personal enjoyment or professional enhancement. These videos are sponsored by the Doris Humphrey Society and filmed by renowned videographer Amy Reusch.
Produced by The Doris Humphrey Society with a grant from The National Initiative for the Preservation of American Dance, underwritten by the Pew Charitable Trusts and administered at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
