Rethinking The Martha Graham Company

It’s been struggling, even in its reinvented form. “In the 15 years since Martha’s death, funding changed, presenting changed, audiences changed, and what we rebuilt last year was based on the old model.” The reinvented group “got the Picassos out of the attic and dusted them off beautifully, but the connection to how the field had moved forward wasn’t addressed. We had a goddess up on top of a mountain and everybody came to her. But without the goddess, we’re just another mountain.”
