Mary Wigman (13 November 1886 – 18 September 1973) was a German dancer, choreographer, and dance instructor.
A pioneer of expressionist dance, her work was hailed for bringing the deepest of existential experiences to the stage. She became one of the most iconic figures of Weimar German culture and is considered to be one of the most important figures in the history of European dance

1986 100 years Birthday

Lovely photo Rod! Thai traditions are graceful and fascinating in their detail. I'm not much of a dancer, dodgy knee.
