Martha Graham on Helen Keller:
"Helen used to come to my school at 66 Fifth Avenue. She felt as if she was watching the dancing. What she was focusing on were the feet on the floor and the direction of the voices. She could not see the dance but was able to allow its vibrations to leave the floor and enter her body."

In this remarkable video, Helen Keller attends a rehearsal of the Martha Graham Dance Company where the dancers perform excerpts from Canticle for Innocent Comedians (1952). Along with the helpful hand of Martha Graham, Keller explores the marvelous physical form of dancers Bertram Ross and Pearl Lang.
