Appalachian Spring
Lamentation Variations

Texas Performing Arts is thrilled to welcome back the iconic Martha Graham Dance Company for the first time in many seasons performing a program of signature and new works. Since its founding by Ms. Graham in 1926, the company has been a leader in the development of contemporary dance, bringing to life a timeless and uniquely American style of dance that digs deep into the psyche to define a new, homegrown, emotionally charged, and socially engaged contemporary. Today’s company continues to foster Graham’s spirit of ingenuity, presenting masterpieces by Graham and her contemporaries, alongside newly commissioned works by artists inspired by Graham’s legacy.
