Saturday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 10
Various galleries throughout The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC
Few dance companies have revolutionized the art quite like Martha Graham’s. From the company’s founding in 1926, Graham’s signature style has remained a “cornerstone” (Time) of American modern dance, and continues to be taught worldwide. Now, in conjunction with the exhibition Art for the Millions: American Culture and Politics in the 1930s, dancers from the Martha Graham Dance Company stage some of Graham’s most powerful ’30s solos in galleries throughout The Met.
Works to include Lamentation (1930), Satyric Festival Song (1932), Ekstasis (1933), Spectre-1914 (1936), Immediate Tragedy (1937), and Deep Song (1937). See below for a complete schedule.
