About the Graham Studio Series
The Martha Graham Dance Company welcomes guests, patrons and fans into its West Village studios for intimate performances along with a glass of wine. The 2016-2017 Season the Company will host eleven performances, under the themes: GrahamDeconstructed, NEW@Graham, and Shoot the Dancers. For the first time ever, we have made the full Studio Series available as a season package.
A unique opportunity to view great Graham works up close and hear about the artistic and historical context of their creation from Artistic Director Janet Eilber. The program offers a glimpse of the artistic labor that goes on every day at the Martha Graham studios to preserve and augment Martha Graham’s great legacy.
Introducing the audience to the Company’s newest commissions, by offering a sneak-peek of the work before its premiere. After each performance, Artistic Director Janet Eilber hosts a conversation with the commissioned choreographer and the audience.
Shoot the Dancers
Audiences are invited to learn the secrets behind the images of leading dance photographers. Following a conversation with the artists, the Company takes the stage. The audience is invited to take out their own cameras and catch the Graham dancers in motion.
