The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a leader in the development
of contemporary dance since its founding in 1926. Informed by the
expansive vision of pioneering choreographer Martha Graham, the Company
brings to life a timeless and uniquely American style of dance that has
influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences.
Always a fertile ground for experimentation, Martha Graham Dance
Company has been an unparalleled resource, nurturing many of the
leading choreographers and dancers of the 20th and 21st centuries,
including Merce Cunningham, Erick Hawkins, Pearl Lang, Pascal Rioult,
and Paul Taylor. Graham’s repertoire of 181 works has also engaged noted performers such as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Claire Bloom, Margot Fonteyn,
Liza Minnelli, Rudolf Nureyev, Maya Plisetskaya, and Kathleen Turner.
Her groundbreaking techniques and unmistakable style have earned the
Company acclaim from audiences in more than 50 countries throughout
North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
Today, the Company continues to foster Graham’s spirit of ingenuity.
It is embracing a new programming vision that showcases masterpieces by
Graham, her contemporaries, and their successors alongside newly
commissioned works by contemporary artists inspired by Graham’s legacy.
With programs that unite the work of choreographers across time within a rich historical and thematic narrative, the Company is actively working to create new platforms for contemporary dance and multiple points of
access for audiences.
