Peak Performances presents the Martha Graham Dance Company

Posted on: 11/18/2019 6:00AM

Peak Performances presents the Martha Graham Dance Company, comprising the “most skilled and powerful dancers you can ever hope to see” (The Washington Post), dancing the revolutionary choreographer’s Appalachian Spring. Performances will take place November 14-17 at the Alexander Kasser Theater at Montclair State University (1 Normal Ave, Montclair, NJ).

 

The company celebrates the 75th anniversary of this enduringly powerful work with a dynamic, lyrical new dance that resonates with Graham’s classic: Peak Performances commission The Auditions, choreographed by Troy Schumacher to an original score by composer Augusta Read Thomas, and performed by seven Martha Graham Dance Company members. The International Contemporary Ensemble, “America’s foremost new-music group” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker), joins the Graham Company for world-class renditions of new music by Thomas and the original Pulitzer Prize–winning score for Appalachian Spring by Aaron Copland.
