Martha Graham Dance Company
The EVE Project, Celebrating the Many Facets of Womanhood
Performance Dates
Thursday, November 8, 2018 7:30pm at Centennial Hall

As the oldest and most celebrated modern dance company in America, the Martha Graham Dance Company exemplifies its founder’s timeless and uniquely American style of dance – one that has influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

In celebration of the Centenary of American Women's Right to Vote in 2020, the Graham Company is performing The EVE Project, which not only honors the progression of women in the last 100 years, but also provides entree into today’s most pressing conversations.

This program features 3 of Graham’s signature pieces in addition to new works from some of today’s top choreographers. The Dark Meadow Suite, Ekstasis and Errand into the Maze, are all stunning Graham masterworks, which tell a diverse set of narratives of women searching for connection, self-discovery and empowerment. The Lamentation Variations by Aszure Barton, Bulareyaung Pagalava and Larry Keigwin reflect on Graham’s signature solo and her enduring influence. The program closes with Woodland, Pontus Lidberg’s popular, high-energy dance for 10 featuring a female soloist who is a dreamer, observer and outsider in a whimsical world — perhaps conjured by her own imagination.

This is surely a show that you do not want to miss.
