 “Modern dance isn’t anything except one thing in my mind: the freedom of women in America.” -Martha Graham


Martha Graham moved dance from an aesthetic primarily about pleasing the eye to one that explores the entire human experience: from ancient Greek myth to grief, upheaval, and war, focusing particularly on female lives.
