Essential Graham March 22    Lauded as “one of the seven wonders of the artistic universe” (Washington Post) and “one of the great companies of the world” (New York Times), the Martha Graham Company will visit BYU campus in March with a performance that The Daily Telegraph of London called “unmissable.”    Founded in 1926 by dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, The Martha Graham Dance Company is the oldest contemporary dance company in America. Comprised of classic works from the Martha Graham repertory, Essential Graham spans decades of the artist’s work. Thirty BYU students will join for “Panorama,” a dance about strength, individuality and unity of women.    “The American ideals of individuality, self-expression and innovation are really part of what modern dance has sprung from,” said Marilyn Berrett, chair of BYU’s Department of Dance. “Martha Graham is an iconic American figure because of the role she played in the modern art movement.”    The concert will include a history of Martha’s work, so audience members who are unfamiliar with the style can learn about and appreciate the intricacies of the choreography.     “This will be a guided experience for someone who’s going in without experience in dance,” Marilyn says.     Essential Graham will take place March 22 at the de Jong Concert Hall at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $8 to $30.     For more information, visit byuarts.com.
