The Martha Graham Dance Company celebrates the exhilarating return to live theater with this performance of iconic Graham classics alongside a stunning new work by one of today’s top choreographers.  Diversion of Angels, Graham’s joyous ode to love for ten dancers launches the program and is followed by one of her most powerful solos, Immediate Tragedy. 

Reno audiences will be among the first to see Umbra by the much-in-demand choreographer Andrea Miller.  This season premiere showcases the world-renown athleticism of the Graham dancers and speaks to the rhythms, cycles, and surges of the natural world.

The full Company will close the program with Acts of Light, created by Graham in 1981 and performed in three sections.  The first is a passionate duet titled ‘Conversation of Lovers’.  The second, ‘Lament’, references Graham’s early modernist solo, Lamentation, and the final section, “Ritual to the Sun”, is a high-energy celebration of Graham’s famed dance language.
