Event Information

Janet Eilber in Lamentation Lamentation premiered in New York City on January 8, 1930, at Maxine Elliot’s Theater, to music by the Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály. The dance is performed almost entirely from a seated position, with the dancer encased in a tube of purple jersey. The diagonals and tensions formed by the dancer’s body struggling within the material create a moving sculpture, a portrait which presents the very essence of grief. The figure in this dance is neither human nor animal, neither male nor female: it is grief itself (Martha Graham Dance Company).

In Carolina Performing Arts first-ever artist “takeover” dancers from Martha Graham Dance Company (MGDC) host lively immersive experiences featuring Graham’s pioneering choreography alongside emerging technologies in the setting of CURRENT ArtSpace + Studio. Make your own experience: each ticketholder is welcome to move between spaces and activities as much as you’d like during your ticketed time.
