Martha Graham Dance Company
February 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The most celebrated modern dance company in America returns to our stage with a wondrous classic and an exciting Philadelphia premiere. The “most skilled and powerful dancers you can ever hope to see” (The Washington Post) perform a newly reimagined Canticle for Innocent Comedians, based on the 1952 original which was considered magical but is now lost. With lead choreography by Emmy® and Tony® Award-winner Sonya Tayeh alongside a diverse group of dance-makers, this Canticle keeps the same format and theme with a new score by jazz pianist Jason Moran. Completing the program, the iconic Appalachian Spring showcases why Graham’s legacy and stunning company have remained at the forefront of American dance for most of a century.
