Inhaltsangabe: This work offers an original look at the life and work of Charles Weidman (1907-1975), a distinguished dancer and choreographer who, though an originator of twentieth-century American dance, has remained previously overshadowed and unrecognized in dance history. This study will appeal to scholars who are interested in the history of dance, especially in the United States. This study traces the life of Charles Weidman (1907-1975), a distinguished dancer and choreographer, is recognized as an originator of twentieth-century American dance, from his early years in the Midwest, his friendship with Martha Graham and Jose Limon, his partnership with Doris Humphrey and Pauline Lawrence, to the formation of the Expression of Two Arts Theatre with visual artist Mikhail Santaro. This work examines Weidman's concert works, Broadway shows, and opera productions, where his modern dance ideas revitalized these theatrical forms. Weidman's training system is analyzed by stressing its lineage, his men's group, rebound principle, floor work, use of drums and rhythm, and his kinetic pantomime.Now, thirty years after his death, evidence is beginning to shed new light on Charles Weidman's enormous influence upon and legacy for modern American dance.
