After an absence of nearly three decades, Martha Graham Dance Company returns to La Jolla Music Society to captive audiences with the “most skilled and powerful dancers you can ever hope to see” (The Washington Post). Martha Graham has been a world-leader in the development of contemporary dance since its founding in 1926. Don’t miss this program of iconic masterworks by Martha Graham including Diversion of Angels (1948) and Chronicle (1936) paired with an innovative new work by choreographer Pam Tanowitz, whose recent works have been declared by The New York Times to be, “the greatest creation of dance theater so far this century.”
