BOX 30-43, 55, 59 Choreographic and Teaching Notes, 1960, 1971-2008, and undated
The Choreographic and Teaching Notes series is split into four subseries: Pearl Lang Choreography, Martha Graham Choreography, Technique Teaching (organized by date) and Miscellaneous Notes (general, Yiddish, and miscellaneous). Choreographic Notes are organized alphabetically by the title of work, the bulk of which pertain to The Possessed and Shirah. Among these materials are notes in Lang's hand describing a number of Graham works in which Lang danced, such as Night Journey and Lamentation. Choreographic Notes also includes a folder on costume notes. Lang's research in preparation for a particular choreographic project are included with Choreographic Notes. Film notes are also included in this section, organized by piece. The Technique Teaching subseries is organized by year from 1978 to 2008. Lang organized some of her own notes into binders, which have been kept together, hence there are year spans. Primarily handwritten, her notes contain information about her instructions and exercises in subjects such as technique, composition, performance, dance therapy, children’s dance, and movement for actors, the bulk of which are technique-based. There are some notes that pertain directly to the teaching of Graham dance technique. Music Notes are largely informal jottings listing various composers and musicians on small scraps of paper. The Miscellaneous Notes subseries consists of miscellaneous notes, some of which are organized by year or topic including Hasidism, the rest of which are miscellaneous and handwritten. There are also miscellaneous Yiddish notes.
Each subseries is arranged alphabetically by title, topic, or chronologically depending on Lang's original organization of each.
