Today, this extraordinary company of 16 gorgeous dancers masterfully honors Graham’s legacy with a dramatic and exciting evening of Graham classics, rare films and newly commissioned works. The program is highlighted by the New Orleans debut of Graham’s iconic masterpiece Appalachian Spring (1944), set to the famous Aaron Copeland score, and a special performance of Panorama (1935), danced by New Orleans youth in celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the NORDC/NOBA Center For Dance.
“The most significant theatre of our time…as near to being an ideal dance company as we have any hope of seeing.” —The New York Times
