Abstract

Recounts the history of the creation and performance of choreographer Helen Tamiris's Walt Whitman Suite, a dance created in 1936 for the Federal Dance Project and based on "Salut au Monde," "Song of the Open Road," and "I Sing the Body Electric"; proposes that Tamiris is "a translator of Whitman's words into the new language of modern dance."
