Costume sketch for the soloist in Martha Graham's Heretic (1929).
“The modern dancer uses costume as an integral part of the dance. There is always some reason why a dance should be in a certain color or a dress cut in a certain way. Costumes for the modern dance are very different from ballet costumes; they have grown out of the modern dancer's attitude toward movement. The costume has to be designed around the physical aspect of the dance.” – Martha Graham
