“The EVE Project celebrates female power.”
–New York Times
Martha Graham Dance Company returns to Carolina Performing Arts with stunning new works from The EVE Project, created in honor of the hundredth anniversary of the 19th Amendment and featuring the work of women choreographers and composers. Alongside classic repertory highlighting Graham heroines and anti-heroines, The EVE Project honors the progress of women in the last 100 years and provides an entrée into today’s most pressing conversations about gender and power.
“The EVE Project is intended to connect audiences—in the ephemeral and visceral way dance does—to both historical and contemporary ideas of the feminine,” said Janet Eilber, Artistic Director of the Martha Graham Dance Company. “It provides a lens through which to consider Graham’s transformative views of women in concert with the immediate and personal creations of today’s visionary dance makers.”

Led by Graham Company Senior Artistic Associate, Denise Vale, this master class is designed to give students insight into Graham’s innovations and her concept of “contraction and release,” the foundations of this unique form of physical expression. Phrases and movements from the repertory that will be presented by the Martha Graham Dance Company in its performance at Memorial Hall on January 30, 2020, will be included. This master class is for intermediate and advanced dancers. Previous study of the Graham Technique is not required.
