The Martha Graham Dance Company has invited for The University Partners Showcase five universities and one performing arts high along with Graham II school to perform on Wednesday, March 14th, at 7:30pm at The Joyce Theater, 175 8th Avenue (at 19th Street), NYC, as part of the Company's 86th Anniversary season. The Company has chosen Inner Landscape as the focus for its 2012 season and will present a great range of performances, partnerships and educational activities exploring the psychological aspects of dance.

The special program for the evening includes: Graham II – Diversion of Angels; Interlochen Arts Academy (Michigan) – Panorama; Point Park University (Pennsylvania) – Heretic; Skidmore College (New York) – Steps in the Street ; The Hartt School of the University of Hartford (Connecticut) – Dark Meadow Suite; New World School of the Arts – Prelude to Action; and the University of Arizona (Arizona) – On My Mother's Side.

Dance students from six different national training programs will come to NYC to perform Inner Landscape classics. Dances performed will include six masterworks by Martha Graham seminal to her revolution in modern dance. University of Arizona will also perform a work by another important pioneer of American dance, Charles Weidman.

"We are very proud of our student productions of Graham dances and have partnered with schools all over the world since 2003," says Janet Eilber, artistic director of the Martha Graham Center. "This is the first time we've organized a gathering of this year's top student productions. It's going to be a logistical challenge to have over 100 students on the stage in the course of the evening, but the energy will be tremendous. And I know it will be very moving to see the next generation of dancers take on these masterpieces of American dance."
