This chapter is devoted to Graham’s Night Journey (1948) as a major postwar ballet. It discusses the ballet’s surrealistic qualities, the performance style of Graham, the relation of myth to ritual, the psychoanalytic theory motivating the work in Fromm and Rank, and the theme of incest. It provides an alternative to the hegemonic narrative of the Graham-Hawkins breakup in London.

Keywords:   Night Journey, surrealism, Erich Fromm, Otto Rank, incest
