Martha Graham holds a place next to Picasso as one of the greatest innovators of the 20th century. She not only transformed dance, she commissioned some of the most important orchestral and chamber music works of her time. In a rare one-time performance, the company will perform with live musical accompaniment. Christopher Rountree will lead the music ensemble wild Up in this extraordinary collaboration.
