(274) Reimagining lost works of Martha Graham: with Janet Eilber and Christopher Rountree

Conversations on Dance

Today on ‘Conversations On Dance’, we are joined by Janet Eilber, the artistic director of the Martha Graham Dance Company and Wild Up musical director Christopher Rountree. Janet and Christopher have been working together to revive and re-envision the choreographic works of 20th century giant Martha Graham and their accompanying musical compositions. They talk to us about their process in re-envisioning these works, how they attempt to inhabit the minds of the creative geniuses who bore them, and why these works are still relevant to audiences today.  The Soraya performing arts venue in Los Angeles, CA has been an integral part of these restoration projects and will be the first to present the latest project ‘The New Canticle for Comedians’, a reimagined upgrade to a Graham work that was almost entirely lost. The premiere of ‘New Canticle’ is this March 19, 2022. If you are in the Los Angeles area, you can find tickets at thesoraya.org or click here for tickets https://www.thesoraya.org/calendar/details/mgdc-2022. _________________________ LINKS: Cleveland School of Ballet: Trainee Program Auditions – https://clevelandballet.org/trainee-program-auditions/ Summer Intensive Auditions – https://clevelandballet.org/summer-intensive-2022/ Dimensions Dance Theatre of Miami – dimensionsdancemia.com Dancespiration raffle – www.dancespiration.store ________________________ Join our email list: https://bit.ly/3basX5g Instagram: instagram.com/conversationsondance Facebook: facebook.com/conversationsondance Facebook Group:  facebook.com/groups/conversationsondancefriends Twitter: twitter.com/convoondance conversationsondancepod.com The post (274) Reimagining lost works of Martha Graham: with Janet Eilber and Christopher Rountree appeared first on tendusunderapalmtree.com.

(227) Xin Ying, Principal with Martha Graham Dance Company

Conversations on Dance

This week on the Conversations on Dance podcast, we are joined by Martha Graham Dance Company Principal Dancer, Xin Ying. Ying was born in China and began dancing at the age of 6 taking classes in Chinese folk dance. At just 15 she entered college and after graduating, she went on to teach dance at the Sichuan University of Culture and Arts. After years of teaching, she decided that she wanted to travel to further her understanding of dance, then bring that knowledge back to her students. Ying received funding from her University to travel to New York City and attend the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance. From there, her love for the Martha Graham technique blossomed: she took a position in the second company and would go on to join the main company in 2011. We talk with Ying about her training and education in China, her incredible career trajectory, what made her fall in love with the Graham technique, and what this past year has been like for her. We recorded this episode on Friday, April 30th before the company’s return to live shows this past weekend.  For more information on the company’s live and virtual programming, please visit marthagraham.org.
