It’s a gift to be simple (but not that simple)

Ballet for Martha, by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan, tells the story of the creation of Appalachian Spring by Martha Graham, Isamu Noguchi, and Aaron Copland. Jan and Sandra end the book with a wonderful line that looks beyond the dance’s premiere and toward performances to come: “And the collaboration will be created anew.”

And how!
