Water and nature don’t only inspire cultural and ethnic groups, but all artists! Doris Humphrey, a famous modern choreographer of the 1920s – 40s, was intrigued by water and its ability to portray her fall and recovery theory:
“Humphrey’s choreography began with experiments in dance theory and as an attempt to reduce dance to pure movement. Water Study (1928) incorporated her theory of fall and recovery and used only nonmusical rhythms (waves and natural human breath and pulse rhythms). Drama of Motion (1930) was themeless and also performed without music; it has been described as one of the first symphonic dances and exemplifies her belief that movement creates its own meaning”
(“Water Study.” Encyclopædia Britannica. 2010. Encyclopædia Britannica Online. 22 Jun. 2010 ).
From these basic experiments in choreography, the first of which was inspired by water, Humphrey was able to grow as a dancer, choreographer and theorist which, in turn, changed and evolved the modern dance world for all time. Notice the that the only noises made are those of the dancers (they are wearing nude leotards):
