Adaptations and the Metropolis - my paper

Lamentation is a solo Martha Graham created and performed in New York in 1930. At the 10th AAS (Association of Adaptation Studies) Conference, Adaptations and the Metropolis, I will present the paper "Kinetic lines, embodied perspectives: Martha Graham's Lamentation and the City of New York", focusing on its profound connections with New York both in terms of content and form. The above mute video portrays Graham dancing some parts of the solo in 1943, here is the source I have taken it from.
