Front page of the program for Martha Graham and Dance Group's performance at the Guild Theatre in New York City on May 2, 1937. The dances featured on this program were:
Praeludium (1935), Celebration (1934), Frontier (1935), and Chronicle (1936). Chronicle premiered at the Guild Theatre on December 20, 1936.
"Chronicle does not attempt to show the actualities of war; rather does it, by evoking war's images, set forth the fateful prelude to war, portray the devastation of spirit which it leaves in its wake, and suggest an answer."
