Rudolf Laban, Mary Wigman, Kurt Jooss

This, Part 1 of a two-part documentary, begins with Rudolf Laban (1879-1958), credited with being one of the most important innovators and guiding forces of modern dance.

It continues with two of his most gifted and influential students, Mary Wigman, who became the foremost choreographer and exponent of German expressionist dance, and Kurt Jooss, who was Laban's assistant and lead dancer..

Jooss later established his own company Ballets Jooss, with great success until forced to leave Germany for political reasons in 1933.

Part I concludes with preparations for the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
