Summary, etc.:
Described by The Washington Post as "one of the seven wonders of the artistic universé, this groundbreaking and celebrated company is embracing a new vision that showcases masterpieces by Martha Graham, her peers and their successors as well as newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. Program includes a rare staging of Appalachian Spring (1944) set to Aaron Copland́s Pulitzer Prize-winning score. Considered Grahaḿs great enduring masterwork, Appalachian Spring celebrates its 70th birthday this season. The program also features Lamentation Variations, newly choreographed by three celebrated dance makers: Sonya Tayeh, Kyle Abraham and Larry Keigwin. The works by Tayeh and Abraham are West Coast premiers following their debut at the Joyce Theater in New York. Tayeh is best known to television audiences for her choreography for So You Think You Can Dance.
