This is a very sad news. I met Pearl Lang in 2007, she was an incredible woman, "over flowing and temperamental" as John Martin said of her. Her performance of Graham's "Letter to the World" in the 1973 video reconstruction is stunning and moving. She was a great artist and the dance world will miss her a lot.
