Graham 2 Holiday Event

This event has already taken place.Dec. 15, 2023 – 16, 1 – 2 pm, 5 – 6 pm,

For its 2023 holiday event, Graham 2, the Martha Graham School’s acclaimed performing ensemble, will present some of Martha Graham’s iconic dances ranging from the late 1920s to the 1980s, including Heretic (1929), Satyric Festival Song (1932), excerpts from American Document (1938), El Penitente (1940), Appalachian Spring (1944), and Acts of Light (1981). Preteens from the Teens@Graham program will join the company.

This lighthearted, family-friendly event will bring Martha Graham “herself” onto the stage. Graham Company alum Jesse Factor will appear as the choreographer in all her dramatic regalia humorously guiding us through some of the choreographic highlights of her career.

Opening night will feature refreshments and sparkling beverages to toast to the holidays. Saturday performances will feature crafts, snacks, and goodie bags for the younger set, and a chance to dance and be photographed with the dancers!
