In 1935, Martha Graham performed her Lamentation solo and Barbara Morgan was there, photographing the struggle between the fabric and the dancer, the pain and the body. An absolute unequalled piece of dance the Queen of Modern Dance created in 1930 that deals with a minimalistic and amazing poetry. Watching the dancer locked inside her tube of fabric, every viewer should take up his  deeper pain again and cry.
