Performances include works-in-progress showings of new commissions by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Annie-B Parson, a Shoot the Dancers event launching the NYC Dance Project Photo Book, and an inside look at Graham works including Sacred/Profane Project and Dark Meadow.

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.

GrahamDeconstructed

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.

NEW@Graham

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.
