If you enjoy dance, you won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to watch a performance by the world-renowned Martha Graham Dance Company, performing at the Barclay Theatre (4242 Campus drive) in Irvine on Wednesday, February 27th.
As the oldest and most celebrated modern dance company in America, the Martha Graham Dance Company exemplifies its founder’s timeless and uniquely American style of dance — one that has influenced generations of artists and continues to captivate audiences worldwide.
Having performed at the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, the Paris Opera House, Covent Garden, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the dance company is performing at Irvine’s Barclay Theatre as part of its EVE Project.
The EVE Project is the dance company’s two-year initiative, commemorating the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The Eve Project features a comprehensive range of women choreographers, from the deepest roots of modern dance — Martha Graham’s heroines and anti-heroines — to contemporary superstars.
The Barclay Theatre has announced that the February 27th program will include Diversion of Angels, Graham’s lyrical essay on love; Ekstasis, a gorgeous reconstruction of Graham’s original creation of the discovery of a woman’s body; Lamentation Variations, in which today’s choreographers take inspiration from Graham’s iconic Lamentation; and Errand into the Maze, a Graham masterwork.
The Washington Post has called this program “One of the seven wonders of the artistic universe.”
