Martha Graham Dance Company 90th Anniversary Season
Martha Graham Dance Company
The world-renowned Martha Graham Dance Company celebrates its 90th anniversary season April 14−18, 2016, at New York City Center. The season will feature several of Martha Graham’s most important masterworks, including Chronicle (1936), Appalachian Spring (1944), Cave of the Heart (1946), Lamentation (1930), and Night Journey (1947). As part of a new educational partnership, all of the music for the Graham classics will be played by The Mannes Orchestra, under the direction of Mannes Orchestra Artistic Director David Hayes. The season also includes premieres of commissioned works by internationally acclaimed choreographers Marie Chouinard, Mats Ek, and Pontus Lidberg, and recent dances created for the Company by Nacho Duato and Andonis Foniadakis. The Gala program on April 18, the anniversary of Graham’s first public performance with her Company in 1926, will feature eight works from 1926 to 2016. The extraordinary Aurélie Dupont, a former étoile with the Paris Opera Ballet, will perform with the Company on the Gala evening.
