The Martha Graham Dance Company presents the third annual NEXT@Graham festival featuring works by ten choreographers/dance companies in two distinct programs. Performances are Tuesday and Wednesday, May 7–8, at 7pm, at the Martha Graham Studio Theater, 55 Bethune Street (11th floor), in Manhattan.
NEXT@Graham aims to present works from the next generation of exciting choreographers. Artists are selected through a competitive application process overseen by Martha Graham Artistic Director Janet Eilber and a panel that includes choreographers and arts professionals. The works presented in this third edition respond to the Company’s season theme: The EVE Project, which broadly explores historic and contemporary gender issues as seen in art, social interaction, politics, and commerce.
One choreographer will be selected to participate in the 2019–20 Graham Resident Artist Program, which provides 30 hours of free rehearsal space, a technical rehearsal, and an additional performance opportunity.
The 2019 NEXT@Graham festival is produced by choreographer Amanda Hameline.
