Martha Graham Dance Company
A Legacy of Innovation: The Lamentation Variations
- Lenox, MA
Lamentation Variations is an ongoing creative project in which some of today’s top choreographers create new dances for the Graham Company inspired by a film of Martha Graham dancing her iconic solo from 1930, Lamentation. The evening will include archival footage of Graham discussing and dancing Lamentation, and a narrated demonstration of Graham’s revolutionary movement vocabulary based on the “contraction and release.” Members of the Company will dance complete variations by Aszure Barton, Kyle Abraham and Bulareyaung Pagarlava.
