Travel Tip: Dance in United States
Martha Graham Dance Company



Martha Graham Dance Company
UNITED STATES
NEW YORK  •  The Joyce Theater  •  Ongoing
 
Martha Graham Dance Company presents Myth and Transformation three compelling programs that explore how artists reinvent iconic stories to make forceful contemporary statements. Performances include a new production of Graham's erotic masterwork Phaedra, paired with The Show (Achilles Heels), a highly provocative interpretation of the Achilles legend created, choreographed, and directed by Richard Move, which was originally commissioned by the White Oak Dance Project. The work features an original score by Arto Lindsay with songs by Deborah Harry and Blondie and includes scenic art by Nicole Eisenman. An all-Graham program showcases three Greek-themed Graham masterworks: Cave of the Heart, The Errand into the Maze Project, and Night Journey. A third program features two premieres: the New York premiere of Doug Varone's Lamentation Variation, a haunting quartet set to Ravel, and the world premiere of From the Grammar of Dreams by Luca Veggetti with music by Kaija Saariaho.
