Summary Ms. Clarke's dance films, though rarely seen, are seminal in the history of dance for the camera. The tape features: Dance in the Sun (1953), with Daniel Nagrin In Paris parks (1954) Bullfight (1955) Moment in love (1956) both with Anna Sokolow A visual diary (1980) with Blondell cummings. Shirley Clarke began her career as a dancer, having studied and performed with Martha Graham, Anna Sokolow, and Hanya Holm. Her background as a dancer is evident in her body of film and video work, in her use of a wandering, improvisational camera and the sense of movement that pervades even her earliest black & white films. Dancing propelled her into filmmaking and eventually to an Academy Award for her film Robert Frost: A Lover's Quarrel With The World, the 1962 documentary commissioned by President John F. Kennedy.
