"In Goddess more than 30 Martha Graham dancers recall the complex experience of studying, working and performing with this small giant of a woman. They represent all the decades of the Graham era, from the twenties into the nineties, and their commentary illuminates the creation and performance of such now classic Graham works as Heretic, Primitive Mysteries, Letter to the World, Deaths and Entrances, Herodiade, Appalachian Spring, Dark Meadow, Cave of the Heart, Night Journey, Diversion of Angels and Clytemnestra." "As the artists relive their time with Graham, their words and voices sound with stunning authenticity, while the incidents and the emotions they remember range from moments of exaltation and exhilaration to those of humiliation and fury. Throughout this remarkable oral history, legendary dancers show us Martha Graham as she has never been seen before - at work and in love, giving and demanding, inspiring and imperious, and as a presence that will always be with them."--BOOK JACKET.
