Sokolow in her "Mexican Retablo"

Sokolow in her "Mexican Retablo"

Mexican Retablo is one of many works Sokolow choreographed on Mexican themes. The first part of the piece shows "Our Lady" standing on a pedestal, as depicted in native paintings, while the second shows a supplicant kneeling emotionally in front of the Virgin.

Notes: Description from Margaret Lloyd, The Borzoi Book of Modern Dance, cited in Larry Warren, Anna Sokolow: The Rebellious Spirit (Amsterdam: Harwood Academic Publishers, 1998), 80.
