Culture--A Lewis & Clark grad preserves Maria Tallchief's story, in words and dance
For years, many of Tallchief's performances lay locked away in studio vaults. But thanks to the perseverance of a Lewis & Clark College graduate, finally, it's possible to see what made Tallchief such a significant force in the evolution of American ballet--what made her in the words of a New York Times critic at the time, the embodiment of "fury and passion, and an unearthly magic."
It's about time. It's a chance for Americans to see how talented Miss Maria Talchief truly is as well as a cultural/history lesson.
Her ballet performances will live on as long as Americans appreciate ballet and other high culture genres.
