Three years after leaving “Denishawn” the dance school she studied in, Martha Graham founded her first dance group. As part of the group, Graham has created over 70 works, even when passed the age of 90, and became a key figure in contemporary dance. Her early works were about the American identity and heritage, and then focused on psycho-mythic creations, which were influenced by the theories of Freud and Jung, and sometimes offered a feminist reading of the founding texts in Western culture.
