About this Item

[16] p.: illustrated advertisements; 26 cm. Wrappers, dated April 7, 1923, at foot of front wrapper. This is the program for a performance of Ruth St. Denis with Ted Shawn and the Denishawn Dancers (Martha Graham, Pearl Wheeler, Betty May, Lenora Scheffer, Julia Bennett, May Lynn, Louise Brooks, Charles Weidman, and Robert Gorham). With an instrumental quartet conducted by Louis Horst, pianist; J. Frolig, violin; Augusto Scalzi, flute; and Peter Kleynenberg, cello. The program includes Xochitl, in which the role of the title character was choreographed for Martha Graham by Ted Shawn. This was a pivotal role for Graham; the acclaim she received encouraged her to leave the Denishawn dancers after 8 years and work independently. The program includes many advertisements for Philadelphia businesses, some of them illustrated. The advertisements include: Newman Normal School of Dancing; Strawbridge & Clothier offering a variety of Victrolas; William Moennig violin maker and repairer; the Weymann mandolute; and the Philadelphia Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski. A very scarce program from a pivotal moment in the early career of Martha Graham. In Very Good- Condition: wrapper is soiled; staples are rusting; otherwise clean and tight.
