Martha Graham Dance Company's 2015 Joyce Season - 3 diverse programs
Martha Graham Dance Company
The 2015 New York City season pays tribute to Martha Graham’s defining influence as an American modernist with Shape&Design, a program highlighting the sculptural and architectural aspects of choreography by Graham and others. The two-week season features Graham classics, new collaborations, and premieres by guest choreographers in three diverse programs.
Internationally renowned architect Frank Gehry will create projected images that interact with one of Graham’s most architectural works, Steps in the Street from 1936.
Each program this season will open with a short film by photographer, designer, and critically acclaimed image-maker Peter Arnell.
Guest artists Misty Copeland and Herman Cornejo will dance principal roles on opening night.
In celebration of the 85th anniversary of Graham’s signature solo, Lamentation, four bold, contemporary choreographers –- Kyle Abraham, Michelle Dorrance, Liz Gerring, and Sonya Tayeh –- have created Lamentation Variations.
Works by esteemed choreographers Nacho Duato, Annie-B Parson, and Andonis Foniadakis will be showcased.
