Master class with guest choreographer Andonis Foniadakis
Saturday, March 22, 2014
$30 Master class
$65 Master class + Preferred ticket to opening night at NY City Center including the World Premiere of Foniadakis’s new work, Echo on 3.19.14 (package valued is $95)
Foniadakis’s movement vocabulary is built on smooth speed and accuracy. His class works to achieve this quality by first loosening the pelvis and chest through a series of floor exercises and spirals and then moving to larger more complex phrases, focusing on the fluidity of its execution. Appropriate for professional and pre-professional dancers with advanced modern, ballet, or contemporary training. Space is limited.

Graham / Greek Pop-Up Boutique
We hope you will visit the Graham / Greek Pop Up Boutique situated inside New York City Center and bring home a memento of this cultural collaboration. The shop will open before the performance and close only after the guests clear the lobby at the end of the show.
The Graham Greek Pop Up boutique features items from Greece alongside Martha Graham Dance Company merchandise. The pop up boutique reflects a collaborative initiative by Martha Graham Dance Company, Concord Consulting Services Athens- New York, Homer & Co Ithaka pop up store, and Artopolis and The Pi by Regina Katopodis.
The Graham Greek pop up store proudly presents a selection of products of exquisite quality, handcrafted with deep care and ageless wisdom by selected producers, craftspeople, and partners in Greece. The salt of the sea, the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, and the flavour of the olive groves, are all captured in the contemporary aesthetic of our Greek producers and designers.

Join us in the Studio Theater this January for GrahamDeconstructed: Cave of the Heart, an open rehearsal of a 20th Century masterwork. Premiered in 1946, Cave of the Heart, Graham’s abstract re-imagining of the Medea legend, was years in the making. Details of the collaboration between Graham, the composer Samuel Barber and sculptor Isamu Noguchi will be illustrated with a performance of the work itself.
Casting: Miki Orihara as Medea, Tadej Brdnik as Jason, and Carrie Ellmore-Tallitsch as The Chorus

Space for walk-ins is limited, but we welcome you!
All of us at Graham are so enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with internationally acclaimed choreographer Nacho Duato that we are determined to help find the needed support.
Hear the details from our dancers: http://bit.ly/kickstartgraham
It’s risky to create new art and an expensive proposition. But if we can raise seed money from hundreds of small donations, we think it will inspire others.
The dancers have come up with many creative rewards to give you access to their rehearsal process — even if you are on the other side of the world.
Our Kickstarter campaign runs for only 30 days.
We hope you will be part of it!
