Sunday Sermon

The body can not lie

               M. Graham

I've seen this Martha Graham quote rendered in two ways: "The body never lies" and "Movement never lies." I can kind of get behind either version. I will say that I used to go out with someone a long time ago who studied at the Martha Graham dance school in New York and she and her classmates were pretty deceptive, but I suppose the fact I realized this proves the point. I like the version you post -- the body cannot lie -- and from experience am sure this is true. It's just that things can be difficult to interpret. Curtis

I think I get your point. I found the quote in an interview with Baryshnikov. I rather like him, smart guy. His version really.
