Martha Graham Dance Company at The Joyce
Martha Graham Dance Company
The Company’s two-week season at the Joyce, titled Sacred/Profane, contrasts ritualistic and mystical dances with those that consider the emotional interactions of everyday life. Masterworks include selections from Graham’s Dark Meadow, absent from the Graham stage for over ten years, Primitive Mysteries, reflecting the purity found in the virgin mythos of the Southwest, and Deaths and Entrances, influenced by the Gothic vision of the Brontë sisters. The program also features a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who draws on Sufi mysticism to create a piece set to traditional Middle Eastern music, and the premiere of Annie-B Parson’s I Used to Love You, inspired by Graham’s Punch and the Judy and exploring the domestic rough-and-tumble of the street theater classic. The season runs February 14–26, 2017.
