Music in the public domain requires no permission or fees for use.]
Based on the poem "Monday's Child is Fair of Face" and choreographed in
a Graham based vocabulary.
Woman's solo: Broad, sweeping movement with generous spatial projection.
The large movement is punctuated with quickness and sufficient strength
for suspended leaps. Requires a big dancer.
Woman's solo: Quick, clean and precise. Pithy and flippant in style. Rhythmic
precision necessary. Requires a small dancer who is light and can skim
the floor. Technically difficult.
Man's solo: Strength, directness and good control are required to project
a solid male image. The dance is tongue in cheek; this dancer has to work
hard to earn a dollar.
