ABOUT THE EVE PROJECT

The EVE Project – a guiding force behind the Company’s 2018– 19 and 2019–20 seasons – honors not only the upcoming hundredth anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which finally extended the right to vote to women in the U.S., but also provides entrée into today’s most pressing conversations about gender and power. New works from several female choreographers have been commissioned, and the classic repertory will feature both Martha Graham’s heroines and anti-heroines—all with an underlying statement about female power.

“The EVE Project is intended to connect audiences—in the ephemeral and visceral way dance does—to both historical and contemporary ideas of the feminine,” said Janet Eilber, Artistic Director of the Martha Graham Dance Company. “It provides a lens through which to consider Graham’s transformative views of women in concert with the immediate and personal creations of today’s visionary dance makers.”
