Event description

Description

Janet Eilber, artistic director

Martha Graham changed the face of dance. Capturing the spirit of a nation, she brought a distinctly American sensibility to every theme she explored. Graham’s groundbreaking style enlivened the body with raw, electric emotion and continues to challenge and inspire generations of performers and audiences.

In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment, affording women the right to vote, the Eve Project features a comprehensive range of women choreographers, from the deepest roots of modern dance—Martha Graham's heroines and anti-heroines—to contemporary superstars.

The program includes Diversion of Angels, Graham’s lyrical essay on love; Ekstasis, a gorgeous reconstruction of Graham’s original creation of the discovery of a woman’s body; Lamentation Variations, in which today’s choreographers take inspiration from Graham’s iconic Lamentation; and Errand into the Maze, a Grahammasterwork and her signature role, reconstructed with accented choreography after Hurricane Sandy.

“One of the seven wonders of the artistic universe.” (The Washington Post)
