Martha Graham Center joins #GivingTuesday



On November 27, the Martha Graham Center joins a national movement of charities, businesses, foundations, families, students and communities to create #GivingTuesday, a new day during the holiday season that is dedicated to giving.

As part of this first ever #GivingTuesday, the Martha Graham Dance Company invites its community to help reconstruct costumes destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

Diversion of Angels is Martha Graham’s lyrical ode to LOVE. The yellow couple represents adolescent, mercurial love; the red couple, passionate love; and the white couple, enduring, spiritual love.
With gratitude this holiday season, we thank you, our angels, for supporting our Fall and Recovery efforts.
