Martha Graham Dance Company Presents GRAHAMDECONSTRUCTED: EVERY SOUL IS A CIRCUS, April 4-5

The Martha Graham Dance Company will present a rehearsal showing of Graham's 1939 work Every Soul is a Circus as part of its GrahamDeconstructed series on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 4-5, at 7pm.

Notable for being the first dance in which Graham choreographed the workings of the mind, the wry Every Soul is a Circus takes us into the imagination of a self-absorbed woman who sees herself as the star of a circus. The event will include an insider look at elements of the choreography as well as a complete rehearsal run of the dance. Every Soul is a Circus will be presented in New York for the first time since 2012 as part of the Company's upcoming season at The Joyce Theater April 18-30.

GrahamDeconstructed is an ongoing series that offers audiences an opportunity to view the great Graham works up close and to hear about the artistic and historical context of their creation from Artistic Director Janet Eilber.

GrahamDeconstructed: Every Soul is a Circus will take place at the Martha Graham Studio Theater, 55 Bethune Street, 11th Floor, in Manhattan. Tickets are $30 (general) / $20 (students). Livestream tickets are available for $25 (includes the option to watch for seven days after the event). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.marthagraham.org/studioseries/.
