Martha Graham’s influence on dance has been compared with the influence of Picasso on modern visual arts, the influence of Stravinsky on music, and the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright on architecture. IAA is honored to bring this iconic American dance company to Houston. The repertory will include: Dark Meadow Suite (Graham 1946- poetic, gorgeous); Ekstasis (Reinvention of Graham solo from 1933); Lamentation Variations (Variations on Graham’s iconic solo); Errand into the Maze (Duet from 1946 based on the myth of Theseus and Minotaur); Woodland (Work by Pontus Lidberg that premiered in 2016- playful and athletic).
