Martha Graham Dance Company at the Gaillard Center
Tuesday, January 22, 2019 January 22, 2019 King Charles Inn
The Martha Graham Center continues to be a world leader in the evolving art form of modern dance by leveraging a legacy of innovation. Home to the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, and Martha Graham Resources and Licensing, the Center supports creative activity in all divisions — from new theatrical programming and commissioned art, to experiential curricula and innovative engagement opportunities for all types of audiences.
In celebration of the centenary of American Women’s Right to Vote in 2020, the Graham Company has announced The EVE Project, the guiding force behind the Company’s upcoming season. The EVE Project is designed to explore the many different facets of womankind. The theme not only honors the progression of women in the last 100 years, but also provides entrée into today’s most pressing conversations. Graham’s heroines and anti-heroines will be featured in her classic work, Chronicle, all with an underlying statement about female power. New works from several female choreographers, including Lucinda Childs, Pam Tanowitz and a co-creation by Maxine Doyle and Bobbi Jene Smith have been commissioned. Along with the classic repertoire these will feature both Graham’s heroines and antiheroines — all with an underlying statement about female power.
Show starts at 7:30pm
