I was so happy to see and photograph the dress rehearsal of the spring season of The Martha Graham Dance Company.
“Throughout her career, Graham was fascinated by visionaries and prophets. In ”Spectre-1914,” Xin Ying is a prophet beholding appalling visions of war as she rises tall and awesome in a black robe. She then manipulated the robe to show its reverse side, making her seem encased in a blood-red shroud.” -Jack Anderson
In my infrared interpretation the robe is white and blue…
Performed by Xin Ying.
“In “Embattled Garden,” from 1958, Graham—a lover of myth—tackled the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. (The garden is represented by a field of reeds, designed by Isamu Noguchi). ” -from a New Yorker Review
Performed by So Young An, Lloyd Mayor, Natasha Diamond-Walker, Abdiel Jacobsen.
