About

In few words:

Pioneer of modern American dance, Martha Graham has revolutionised codes, using the whole body to create movement and connect her dancers with the earth. Almost thirty years after its last visit, the Martha Graham Dance Company returns to the stage of the Palais Garnier with a number of emblematic works from its repertoire: Appalachian Spring and The Rite of Spring, performed for the first time at the Paris Opera; a variation on the celebrated solo Lamentation, featuring a ballerina clothed in a long fabric tube; Cave of the Heart and Ekstasis, symbols of the influence of Ancient Greek theatre on the choreographer’s work. Nothing less than a journey in time.
