Martha Graham Dance Company

Martha Graham Dance Company

Described by The Washington Post as “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe” and by The New York Times as “one of the great companies of the artistic universe” and byThe New York Times as “one of the great companies of the world,” the Martha Graham Dance Company returns to Memorial Hall with choreographer Nacho Duato’s Carolina Performing Arts-commissioned Rust. Modern dance pioneer Martha Graham, who founded the company in 1926, stands alongside Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, George Balanchine and Coco Chanel as an icon of 20th-century modernism, revolutionizing the dance world with her unorthodox movement language and socially charged exploration of spiritual and emotional themes. Showcasing masterpieces and newly commissioned works, this superb company inspires generations of choreographers and dance lovers.
