Martha Graham Dance Company
The Company presents Sacred/Profane, exploring the psychological, mystical and humorous aspects of magical thinking. Masterworks include selections from Graham’s Dark Meadow, absent from the Graham stage for over ten years; and Primitive Mysteries, reflecting the purity found in the virgin myths of the Southwest. The engagement features a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who draws on Sufi mysticism to create a piece set to traditional Middle Eastern music; and a new work by Annie-B Parson, who has been inspired by Graham’s Punch and the Judy and will explore the domestic rough-and-tumble of that street theater classic.
University Partners performance on Saturday, Feb 18 at 2pm. Tickets: $25.
