"Japanese American Influence in Appalachian Spring"
Marta Robertson, PhD, Professor of MusicGettysburg College
ABOUT THIS EVENTProfessor Marta Robertson looks at the iconic ballet Appalachian Spring (1944) through the lens of Japanese American influences on the initial production, especially via the dancing of Yuriko [Kikuchi] and set design of Isamu Noguchi. Having been detained in incarceration camps, Yuriko and Noguchi offer political and cultural perspectives on the frontier and Americana varying from those of choreographer Martha Graham and composer Aaron Copland.
These lectures are presented as part of the ongoing American Musicological Society lecture series at the Library of Congress.
