NEXT@Graham is a presentation of the popular Graham Studio Series.

Through the application process described below, a range of choreography will be selected to be performed in the intimate Graham Studio Theater. The 2019 presentations will take place on May 7th and 8th.

For its third iteration of Next@Graham, the Martha Graham Center will select works that respond to the Company’s season theme: The EVE Project, which broadly explores the many facets of “woman” including historic and contemporary gender issues as seen in art, social interaction, politics, and commerce.

6-8 choreographers will be selected as a part of a competitive application process overseen by Martha Graham Artistic Director Janet Eilber and panel including choreographers and arts professionals. After the performance, Janet Eilber and the panel will select one choreographer to participate in the 2019/2020 Graham Resident Artist Program, which provides free rehearsal space and an additional performance opportunity.
