The Martha Graham Dance Company takes the stage with two joyous programs celebrating the exhilarating return to live theater. A new work by Andrea Miller provides a high-energy launch to the season. Inspired by the rhythms, speeds, and surges of nonhuman life, Miller's premiere will be performed by eight dancers to a soundscape by Miller’s longtime collaborator Will Epstein.
The wondrous classics Appalachian Spring and Diversion of Angels, with scores created by composers Aaron Copland and Norman Dello Joio, set the stage for an array of rare offerings and premieres. Untitled (Souvenir) by Pam Tanowitz with a score by Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw returns to the repertory. The company will perform Treading, Elisa Monte’s signature duet, Lorenzo by Sir Robert Cohan, and the newly recovered Graham solo Immediate Tragedy onstage for the first time. These dances are enhanced with notable compositions by Steve Reich, Nils Frahm, and Christopher Rountree. Lastly, Graham’s unmissable homage to the power of women, Steps in the Street, rounds out the stellar program.
