New DVD Publication Release by UHM Dance Professor Betsy Fisher

German Lineage in Modern Dance: Solos by Wigman * Hoyer * Holm * Nikolais * Louis, a new publication in DVD format, celebrates the legacy of modern dance that began in Germany before World War I and expanded into new dimensions within the US in the late 20th century. The influence of this complex and compelling heritage has spanned decades and spread to diverse areas globally. This intriguing “must see” DVD presents solos by innovators and artistic heirs of German Expression Dance, or Ausdruckstanz. Works of each choreographer are highlighted through solos, narration and original photographs.

Blending academic research and artistry, Dr. Betsy Fisher has conceived and performed the DVD. Extensive research was conducted in dance archives and dance studios in the United States and Europe. The original choreographers, and /or those who best represent the choreographer’s legacy, directed these solos.
