Episode Summary

Tribute to Lester Horton
Camera Three pays tribute to West Coast modern dance pioneer Lester Horton (1906-1953) through four of his choreographic works, performed by former Lester Horton Dancers Carmen de Lavallade, Alvin Ailey, and James Truitte. Carmen de Lavallade opens with Sarong paramaribo, a solo blending movements derived from Javanese and African dance. The second number features de Lavallade and Alvin Ailey as Mexican peasants in a tribute to artist Jose Clemente Orozco, from Horton's "Dedications in our time" series. De Lavallade and James Truitte follow with "The Beloved", inspired by a Midwest newspaper article about a religious bigot who killed his wife after suspecting her of adultery. The program closes with two selections from Liberian suite, performed by the trio of dancers to the music of Duke Ellington.moreless
