Comprised of the “most skilled and powerful dancers you can ever hope to see” (The Washington Post), the Martha Graham Dance Company performs Graham’s iconic and revered work Appalachian Spring, with original music by Aaron Copland. In this presentation, Martha Graham Artistic Director Janet Eilber introduces the historical and current relevance of this work, followed by a complete 1947 performance film — which includes dancers Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham — and a modern version, filmed at Jacob's Pillow in 2019.    


The dancers gave the kind of deeply committed performances that keep the Graham repertoire vibrant and yes, relevant.
