GrahamDeconstructed - Martha Graham: When Dance Became Modern
Martha Graham Dance Company
The Martha Graham Dance Company continues its fall 2022 Studio Series with a special GrahamDeconstructed event celebrating the release of Martha Graham: When Dance Became Modern by cultural historian Neil Baldwin.
Selected by the book editors of The New York Times as one of "15 new memoirs and biographies to read this Fall," Martha Graham: When Dance Became Modern (published by Alfred A. Knopf) has been praised by Publishers Weekly as “a mesmerizing portrait…Provocative and passionate as the dynamo herself, this richly detailed and insightful page-turner will delight dance aficionados.”
Baldwin will join Martha Graham Dance Company Artistic Director Janet Eilber to discuss Graham’s life, work, and enduring contributions to dance and art. Passages from the book will be read by the author and illustrated with dancing by members of the Company. There will be a wine reception following the event. Baldwin will sign copies of Martha Graham: When Dance Became Modern, available for sale at the event.
