Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

The legendary Martha Graham Dance Company continues to foster Graham’s spirit of ingenuity and artistic collaboration, while inspiring new generations of dance lovers and choreographers. Among the works the company will perform is a new Canticle for Innocent Comedians, based on the themes and format of Graham’s original “lost” work — a celebration of the power of nature and the elements. The series of vignettes features today’s Graham stars in solos, duets and trios by eight diverse choreographers with a new score from jazz pianist Jason Moran. Additional pieces on the program include Errand into the MazeDiversion of Angels and Cave, a high-energy, rave-inspired work by Hofesh Shechter.

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