The GrahamDeconstructed series brings audiences behind the scenes for an intimate view of Martha Graham’s masterworks.

The work will be performed with the extraordinary Noguchi set. Artistic Director Janet Eilber will contextualize the work through a spoken introduction and the audience will have an opportunity to meet and hear from the dancers after the performance.
An ongoing series, GrahamDeconstructed provides a rare opportunity for audiences to witness the workings of a great American modern dance company and offers a glimpse of the artistic labor that goes on every day at the Martha Graham studios to preserve and augment Graham’s great legacy.
