Margaret Barr, storyteller Part one: Snowy

Choreographer Margaret Barr developed a rich style of dance-drama to communicate her strong social conscience. Since dance is ethereal, works are often lost after their performance, but fortunately, two of Margaret Barr’s choreographies were captured on film so we are able to observe her dramatic skills, sophisticated wit, manipulation of dance elements and the societal issues that were important to her.
