Nietzsche’s Dancers: Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, and the Revaluation of Christian Values.

Author, Kimerer L. Lamothe.

When the American modern dancers Isadora Duncan (1877-1928) and Martha Graham (1894-1991) read Nietzsche, they were inspired by the way in which he uses images of dance to figure an alternative to Christian values. They each came to describe their visions for dance in Nietzschean terms. This book investigates the role Nietzsche’s dance images the play in his project of “revaluing all values” and does so alongside the religious rhetoric and subject matter evident in the dancing, teaching, and writing of Duncan and Graham. It concludes that these modern dancers found justification and guidance in Nietzsche’s texts for developing dance as a medium of religious experience and expression.
