I always hang out with friends and family during summer holidays. If this is not…

    world. In finding sources to apply towards researching World War II’s influence on Appalachian Spring (1944), I immediately went to YouTube. The iconic film of Appalachian Spring is a great tool to use when looking at the choreography, set, costumes, and musical score. The set, designed by Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) is very simple, but is highlighted by it’s functionality of one side of an exterior wall, a bench, fencing, a wooden chair, and a slanted boulder in the yard (Aloff 26). Martha Graham…
