Martha Matinees: "Chronicle" and "Steps in the Street"
Martha Graham Dance Company
Martha refused the Nazi's invitation to dance at the Olympic Games in Berlin in 1936. Instead she created Chronicle — a powerhouse statement against oppression that can still knock you out of your seat.
Join us to view archival clips of Martha and her company of all women in moments from this dance, plus the original 1930s cast in the complete Steps in the Street, and our grand finale - Chronicle danced by today's extraordinary Graham women filmed at Jacob's Pillow last August.
MGDC Artistic Director Janet Eilber will be in the Live Chat with Graham Archives Director Oliver Tobin and our Senior Artistic Associate Denise Vale throughout the screening — and hope you will be too!
