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 has announced The EVE Project — the guiding force behind the Company’s 2018/19 and the 2019/20 seasons. The EVE Project is designed to explore the many different facets of womanhood. The theme not only honors the progression of women in the last 100 years, but also provides entree into today’s most pressing conversations. The Company is interested in collaborating with presenters and their local partners to augment main-stage performances with a range of auxiliary events. New works from several female choreographers have been commissioned, and the classic rep will feature both Graham’s heroines and anti-heroines — all with an underlying statement about female power. A new work by Lucinda Childs, Histoire, will be available for performances beginning in spring of 2018. In the spring of ’19, a new work by Pam Tanowitz and a co-creation by Maxine Doyle and Bobbi Jene Smith will be premiered. The work created for the Company by Annie-B Parson in 2017, I used to love you, will also be available.
