Description

Modern dance would not have been created if the revolution to art, known as modernism, had not occurred. The creation of modern dance was heavily influenced by modernism, a period of individual expression and challenging social norms. Looking specifically at the influence of cubist painter, Pablo Picasso, and architect, Frank Lloyd Wright and connecting the modernist ideas of these artists to the to the ideas of early modern dance choreographers such as Doris Humphrey, Martha Graham, and Léonide Massine. We can look at the influence modern art made on modern dance through the exploration of ideas and expressions of modernism.
