CunningGraham: a Merce Cunningham & Martha Graham technique comparison & discussion
Martha Graham Dance Company
Martha Graham Dance Company’s Studio Series continues with CunningGraham, a Merce Cunningham and Martha Graham technique comparison and discussion featuring Graham 2 and Cunningham Workshop participants.
Merce Cunningham began his career in Martha Graham’s company. Was his new style a complete revolt from Graham or is there more in common between these two geniuses than we think? This two-night-only event will feature a comparison of the two physical systems—the classroom techniques—they invented to serve their visions for the stage. The evening will include technique demonstrations and excerpts from a Cunningham work and a Graham work. CunningGraham is organized by Janet Eilber and Virginie Mécène (Graham), and Jennifer Goggans and Daniel Madoff (Cunningham).
Tickets for CunningGraham are $25 (general) and $15 (students) and can be purchased by phone at 212-229-9200, or online at www.marthagraham.org/studioseries.
