As the oldest modern dance company in America, Martha Graham Dance Company pioneers a uniquely American style of dance that captivates audiences and inspires generations. The group's passionate performances and innovative style radically changed the trajectory of dance. Founder Martha Graham was known for creating movement rooted in social and psychological ideas and this innovative company continues to embody her groundbreaking spirit of ingenuity. The program features Martha Graham’s Clytemnestra Act 2 in her trademark, highly dramatic style immediately followed by her final work, Maple Leaf Rag in which she pokes fun at her own ultra dramatic works such as Clytemnestra. The company will also perform two Center for the Arts debuts, including Dark Meadow Suite and a new work set to beautiful Middle Eastern music. The group has performed in the most famous venues around the world from the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, to the Great Pyramids in Egypt, the Paris Opera House, and in the ancient Herod Atticus Theatre on the Acropolis in Athens. Experience first-hand the revolutionary dance that wows audiences around the world.
