Martha Graham Dance Company _ StonyBrook, NY

Recognized as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, Martha Graham created a movement language celebrating the expressive capacity of the human body. 

This show will showcase masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists inspired by Graham’s legacy. Graham’s groundbreaking style grew from her experimentation with elements of contraction and release. Her Company lives on, having expanded contemporary dance’s vocabulary and forever altering the scope of the art form. By rooting works in contemporary social, political, psychological, and sexual contexts, Graham deepened their impact and resonance.
