The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a leader in the development of contemporary dance, and is recognized for its model audience engagement activities.  The company has received international acclaim from audiences in over 50 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, and has performed at most of the major venues of the world. In addition, the Company has produced several award-winning films broadcast on PBS.

The Company will be performing Acts of Light, Chronicle and Lamentation Variations by Bulareyaung Pagarlava, Larry Keigwin, and Richard Move.
