Google Logo - Modern Dance Style

 The Google logo today, in honor of Martha Graham's 135 birthday is one of the best they have posted.  The structure of Graham's dance is very architectural.  Translating those moves into writing was brilliant.

Describing her reluctance to having her dances recorded or re-staged, she said the following:
It wasn't until years after I had relinquished a ballet that I could bear to watch someone else dance it. I believe in never looking back, never indulging in nostalgia, or reminiscing. Yet how can you avoid it when you look on stage and see a dancer made up to look as you did thirty years ago, dancing a ballet you created with someone you were then deeply in love with, your husband? I think that is a circle of hell Dante omitted.
