On Wednesday 15 November 2017 Gillian Goldberger gave a presentation and workshop on Chant Hindu (1947) and in the evening the duet, choreography by Margaret to music by Rimsky-Korsakov was performed by Vincent Hantam and Kasumi Momoda at the Talbot Rice Gallery, The University of Edinburgh.
This was the launch of Body Language, a University of Edinburgh project that is supported by the Welcome trust.
Body Language will catalogue, preserve and make available three significant collections relating to the history of dance, movement, gymnastics and physical education in Scotland and beyond. The collections comprise: the archives of the Margaret Morris Movement International (MMMI); the records of the Scottish Centre of Physical Education, Movement and Leisure (formerly Dunfermline College of Physical Education) (DCPE), and the archives of Scottish Gymnastics.
The collections, which span the 1890s to the 1990s, reveal how innovations in movement and the body intersected with the improvement of physical and mental health and well-being over the course of the twentieth century. Body Language is a partnership between Edinburgh University Library, Moray House School of Education, the Fergusson Gallery in Perth, Margaret Morris Movement International and Scottish Gymnastics.
