Hailed for its commitment to the leading edge of modern dance, the Martha Graham Dance Company performs adventurous new works created by some of today’s top dance-makers side by side with the most profound and influential choreography by Martha Graham. Often compared with Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky and Coco Chanel, this revolutionary artist is an icon of twentieth-century modernism. The Company embodies her uniquely American style of dance, which has influenced generations of artists and captivated audiences worldwide.

This program features a CPA commissioned work by choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui inspired by Sufi poetry and accompanied by Turkish traditional music, in connection with Sacred/Secular: A Sufi Journey. This performance is part of the year-long festival, which is an exploration of Sufism as a spiritual and cultural lens into Islam through the work of performers from four Muslim-majority nations outside the Arab world: Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan and Senegal.
