Two Special NEW@Graham Performances!

The LamVar10 Festival will culminate in a two-day NEW@Graham event at the Martha Graham Studio Theater on October 17 and 18 at 7pm. Each evening will feature a hand picked selection of 5 of the following 8 Variations, offering a wholly unique experience each night: the New York premiere of a Variation by Lil Buck, a preview of a new Variation-in-progress by Gwen Welliver, and Variations by Kyle Abraham, Aszure Barton, Larry Keigwin, Richard Move, Bulareyaung Pagarlava, and Doug Varone. Many of the artists will be in attendance! Click here for tickets!

Be part of our Commissioning Team!

Inspired by the variations’ choreographers and other world-famous artists such as Nacho DuatoSidi Larbi CherkaouiAnnie-B Parson, and Marie Chouinard, who have created works for the Company, the Martha Graham Center is excited to also announce the launch of the Fund for New Work—a campaign to support the creation of vital contemporary dance that will augment the Company’s classic Graham repertory. The fund will allow the Company to sustain Graham’s spirit of ingenuity through new artistic creations inspired by her great legacy.
