The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a world leader in the evolving art form of modern dance since its founding in 1926. Today, the Company is embracing a new programming vision that showcases masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. During its 90-year history, the Company has received acclaim from audiences and critics in more than 50 countries.
This stunning program includes Acts of Light, Immediate Tragedy, and Northrop’s Centennial Commission, Canticle for Innocent Comedians, based on the 1952 Graham work. The original Canticle consisted of eight vignettes dedicated to nature: sun, earth, wind, water, fire, moon, stars, and death. This piece will follow that same structure and include Martha Graham’s original choreography for Moon.
This event will be captioned, with other accessibility services available upon request.
