The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a world leader in the evolving art form of modern dance since its founding in 1926. Today, the Company is embracing a new programming vision that showcases masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. During its 96-year history, the Company has received acclaim from audiences and critics in more than 50 countries.
The Northrop program includes the Martha Graham masterpiece, Chronicle; CAVE, a new work by Hofesh Shechter featuring Daniil Simkin, principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre; and the Northrop’s Centennial Commission, Canticle for Innocent Comedians, an extraordinary new collaboration inspired by the themes and format of the lost Graham work from 1952. This regional debut by eight choreographers includes Lead Choreographer Sonya Tayeh with Alleyne Dance, Yin Yue, Jenn Freeman, Micaela Taylor, and Juliano Nunes, plus an original score by jazz pianist and composer, Jason Moran.
