The Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance continues to be a world leader in the evolving art form of modern dance by leveraging a legacy of innovation. Home to the Martha Graham Dance Company, the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, and Martha Graham Resources and Licensing, the Center supports creative activity in all divisions from new theatrical programming and commissioned art, to experiential curricula and innovative engagement opportunities for all types of audiences.
In the Martha Graham Center of Contemporary Dance app, under the umbrella of the Google Cultural Institute, there are three exhibitions to explore the principal components of Martha Graham's legacy: Martha Graham, the Martha Graham Dance Company, and the Martha Graham Technique. The Martha Graham exhibit is a journey through the roots of Martha Graham's early life and work as a dancer and choreographer. The Martha Graham Dance Company exhibit will guide the viewer through some of the iconic masterpieces of Martha Graham providing insight into an artistic practice that is deeply ingrained in the rhythm of American life and the struggles of the individual. The Martha Graham Technique exhibit explores Grahams groundbreaking style that grew from her experimentation with the elemental movements of contraction and release. The sharp, angular, and direct movements of her technique were a dramatic departure from the predominant style of the time.
