VPAC Executive Director Thor Steingraber and Martha Graham Dance Company Artistic Director Janet Eilber join forces to offer a rare opportunity--the chance to experience an entire performance of the MGDC with live music. The interaction of new music and movement was essential to Graham's revolutionary choreography throughout her career. The program includes Graham classics with scores by Scott Joplin, Samuel Barber, and Carlos Chavez as well as a brand new commission for the Graham repertory--Woodland, created by Pontus Lidberg to music by Irving Fine. Christopher Rountree will lead the music ensemble wild Up in this extraordinary collaboration.
