Martha Graham Dance Company

“One of the great companies of the world.” – The New York Times

Hailed for its commitment to the leading edge of modern dance, the Martha Graham Dance Company performs adventurous new works created by some of today’s top dance-makers side by side with the most profound and influential choreography by Martha Graham. Often compared with Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky and Coco Chanel, this revolutionary artist is an icon of 20th-century modernism. The Company embodies her uniquely American style of dance, which has influenced generations of artists and captivated audiences worldwide.

This program features a CPA Commissioned Work by choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui inspired by Sufi poetry and accompanied by Turkish traditional music, in connection with Sacred/Secular: A Sufi Journey.
