Martha Graham Dance Company
The March installment of the Martha Graham Dance Company’s popular Studio Series features a work-in-progress showing of choreographer Andrea Miller’s new work for the Company. Titled Umbra, the movement vocabulary is inspired by the rhythms, speeds, and surges of nonhuman life. The one-hour showing will include a discussion with Miller and the dancers. Umbra will have its world premiere at New York City Center in April 2020.
NEW@Graham with Andrea Miller will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 24–25, at 7pm, at the Martha Graham Studio Theater.
