MARTHA MATINEES: CunningGraham

Check out this wonderful comparison of Merce Cunningham and Martha Graham-
Merce Cunningham began his career in Martha Graham’s company. Was his new style a complete revolt from Graham or is there more in common between these two geniuses than we think? 'CunningGraham' presents a comparison of the two physical systems—the classroom techniques—they invented to serve their visions for the stage.

Performed February, 2020, Martha Graham Studio Theater
Hosted by Janet Eilber and Virginie Mécène with guests Jennifer Goggans and Daniel Madoff; featuring Graham 2 and dancers from the Cunningham Trust.

NYC Ballet Presents NEW BEGINNINGS

This video by New York City Ballet "New Beginnings" is described as a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home.
The dance is an excerpt from Christopher Wheeldon's "After the Rain" ballet. Colburn Dance was lucky enough to present this pas de deux performed by now Associate Artistic Director of NYCB, Wendy Whelan and Principal Dancer Jared Angle as part of our annual See the Music, Hear the Dance event and artists in residence in 2014 at the Colburn School accompanied by the Colburn: Conservatory of Music.
The primary inspiration for this film danced by Maria Kowroski and Ask la Cour was the resilience demonstrated in response to 9/11 but those themes hold very true during today's challenges as well- enjoy.
