About this show

Martha Graham Dance Company presents "Myth and Transformation" -- three compelling programs that explore how artists reinvent iconic stories to make searing contemporary statements. Performances include a new production of Graham's erotic masterwork, Phaedra, along with other Greek-themed Graham classics such as Cave of the Heart and Night Journey. The centerpiece of the season will be The Show (Achilles Heels), a highly provocative interpretation of the Achilles legend created, choreographed and directed by Richard Move, and originally commissioned by the White Oak Dance Project. The work features an original score by Arto Lindsay with songs by Deborah Harry and Blondie and scenic art by Nicole Eisenman. The New York premiere of Doug Varone's Lamentation Variation, a haunting quartet set to Ravel, are also featured.
