Nacho Duato commissioned to create a new work for the Graham Company

Acclaimed choreographer Nacho Duato will create a new work for the Martha Graham Dance Company in 2013.  Commissioned by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a part of the Company’s Myth and Transformation program, the piece will feature music by Arvo Pärt and will premiere on the same program as Martha Graham’s newly reconstructed The Rite of Spring.  Wendy Whelan, principal dancer with the New York City Ballet, will join the Graham Company as guest artist for these performances on April 26-27, 2013, which conclude the Carolina Performing Arts celebration “The Rite of Spring at 100.”
