Martha Graham Dance Company – 2009 New York Season Promo

This video from Clytemnestra shows us what we’ve come to expect from Graham choreography. The ensemble typically in fairly strict unison, often sharp, rigid looking body positions, angular hands and arms, very deliberate looking precision in movement… And, of course, a very strong sense of the dramatic..

The sequence beginning at 1’30” is very unusual and somehow isn’t the type that I expected to see in this work. It felt a little unusual, maybe slightly out of place to me.

If you enjoyed what is considered to be a 20th century masterpiece, please like then share it with others.
