Summary
The collection includes photographs of Maslow's choreography spanning the 1930s to the 1980s, as well as photographs of choreography by others, notably Martha Graham, Jane Dudley, and William Bales. The collection also includes headshots, photographs of various dancers of the time, programs, promotional materials, newspaper clippings, articles, correspondence, business documents, Maslow's writings, writings by others, and music scores. Of note are the numerous photographs, programs, and promotional materials relating to Maslow's many years as choreographer for the annual Chanukah Festivals for Israel. Another area of particular interest is the large quantity of original, often holograph scores of music composed for Maslow's choreographic works. The Photographs series consists of documentation of Maslow's choreography, choreography by others, and other performance-related material. Photographs of rehearsal, studio photoshoots, and performance document thirty of Maslow's dances choreographed between 1934 and 1985, organized alphabetically by title of dance. Included are dances choreographed during Maslow's time as a member of the New Dance Group, the Dudley-Maslow-Bales Trio, and as the director of the Sophie Maslow Dance Company.
The Programs series consists of programs for performances by the New Dance Group, the Dudley-Maslow-Bales Trio, the Sophie Maslow Dance Company, the Chanukah Festivals, and various other performances with which Maslow was involved. The Promotional Materials series is organized chronologically where dates are known, but much of the material is undated and is located immediately following the dated material. The series includes various leaflets and booklets of photographs and press blurbs produced to promote the Sophie Maslow Dance Company. Also included are posters, flyers, and promotions for the New Dance Group and the Dudley-Maslow-Bales Trio.
Clippings and Articles series consists of reviews of Maslow's choreography, photo features of both Maslow's choreography and her time as a performer, articles written by Maslow, interviews with her, encyclopedia entries on her, and various other writings. Martha Graham Postcards series consists of postcards featuring images of Graham dances in which Sophie Maslow appears. Writings series consists of two subseries: Writings by Sophie Maslow and Writings by Others. Writings by Sophie Maslow includes rehearsal notes, scripts for technique demonstrations, resumes, and various unidentified notes. Writings by Others subseries consists of various scripts and stories, including those which were used as inspiration for choreography, as well as those which described or were featured in Maslow's choreography. Also included are speeches and letters honoring Maslow and letters written to Maslow requesting a performance or the rights to restage her work.
Music Scores series consists of a large amount of music, most of which was used for choreographic works and includes annotations regarding choreography. Of note is the original score for Champion composed by Samuel Matlovsky, Robert Starer's composition The Dybbuk used for Maslow's dance Neither Rest nor Harbor, as well as a number of other holographs and ozalids of original compositions used for various choreographic works.
