This chapter discusses Voyage (1953) as a forgotten Graham work that rejects myth for personal reasons and attempts to apply psycho-dramatic techniques to the creation of choreography. It discusses the development of this work in Graham’s correspondence with her psychoanalyst Frances Wickes, and the influence of Jungian psychoanalysis on the work. It studies Graham’s use of notes and notebooks in the choreography.

Keywords:   Voyage, notebooks, Frances Wickes, psychoanalysis, choreography
