Martha Graham Dance Company Announces February Digital Events

The Martha Graham Dance Company continues its online programming on Patreon, bringing subscribers new levels of access to its dancers, studios, archives, educational programs, and performances. The Company's all-digital 95th season offers unprecedented ways of stepping inside the work of the Company, the groundbreaking, iconic choreographies of Martha Graham, and the dances commissioned from some of today's top choreographers.

The Company's digital offerings are curated thematically by month. The February programming, Past/Present: New Works for the Graham Company, features works inspired by Graham's own discoveries and themes by Maxine Doyle, Bobbi Jene Smith, and Sonya Tayeh. Like Graham, Doyle and Smith's Deo, created for the Company in 2019, uses Greek mythology to make a contemporary statement. Tayeh begins early rehearsals with the Company for a re-envisioning of Graham's Canticle for Innocent Comedians, which will premiere in 2022.

All offerings and events are available starting at $3 per month via Patreon. Membership packages are available at patreon.com/marthagrahamdance. Single tickets are available for certain events at www.marthagraham.org.

Martha Matinee: Deo by Maxine Doyle and Bobbi Jene Smith

$7 (Patreon members) / $10 (single tickets)

A streamed series featuring gems from the archives and performances from the Company's extensive repertory, Martha Matinees are hosted by Artistic Director Janet Eilber and include a live chat with Eilber and special guests.

The February matinee will feature a screening of Deo by Maxine Doyle and Bobbi Jene Smith, choreographers who are both known for their use of drama and emotional content. The work, created for the women in the Company, is inspired by the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone. It features an original score by experimental electronic musician Lesley Flanigan and costumes by Karen Young. Deo premiered at The Joyce Theater in April 2019. Dancers Natasha Diamond-Walker and So Young An, both from the cast of Deo, will join Eilber in the live chat.
