Lester Horton, 1906-2007 (continued)
BOX 12-13 Photographs, 1929-1973
Images of Horton's dance works as well as behind-the-scenes photographs and portraits of Horton make up this subseries and document Horton's early exploration of Native American dances through to the major works he created at the Horton Dance Theater. Of the works represented here, only one was created after Horton's death, Miss Salome. Horton revisited and reworked the story of Salome many times, and this adaptation was likely created as part of a fundraising evening for the Dance Theater. Most of the photographs in this series are reproduced in Modern Dance Pioneer. Titles refer to choreographic works. When known, photographers are identified at the folder level.
