Martha Graham Dance Company

Friday, April 10, 2015 - 8:00pm to Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 10:00pm

Martha Graham has had a deep and lasting impact on American art and culture. She single-handedly defined contemporary dance as a uniquely American art form, which the nation has in turn shared with the world. Crossing artistic boundaries, she collaborated with and commissioned work from the leading visual artists, musicians, and designers of her day, including sculptor Isamu Noguchi and composers Aaron Copland, Samuel Barber, and Gian Carlo Menotti.

Graham’s groundbreaking style grew from her experimentation with the elemental movements of contraction and release. By focusing on the basic activities of the human form, she enlivened the body with raw, electric emotion. The sharp, angular, and direct movements of her techniquewere a dramatic departure from the predominant style of the time.

BONUS: The masterwork Panorama will feature 24 U of MN dance students as part of the extended Martha Graham Dance Company.
