The EVE Project, Panel Discussion
Join us for a free talk with Janet Eilber, artistic director of Martha Graham Dance Company, Liz Lerman, local choreographer and 2002 MacArthur Fellow and Fran Cohen, artistic director of Center Dance Ensemble, moderated by Rose Weitz, ASU professor in Women’s Studies and Sociology. They will discuss the company’s new work and signature pieces that will be performed at the Company’s public performance of “The EVE Project” on Saturday, Nov. 10.
“The EVE Project” performance celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. Audiences will experience these incredible dance movements from the company whose founder created modern dance. This special program features a wide range of female choreographers, from the first iterations of modern dance to contemporary superstars. Guests will experience three of Graham’s signature classic pieces: “The Dark Meadow Suite,” “Ekstasis” and “Errand into the Maze,” all stunning Graham masterworks, tell diverse narratives of women searching for connection, self-discovery and empowerment. Additionally, this program will feature new works choreographed by Annie B. Parson, Gwen Tolliver and Aszure Barton, “Lamentation Variations.”
