The EVE Project
The EVE Project celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which in 1920 guaranteed all American women the right to vote. Featuring three of Graham’s signature classic pieces in conversation with eye-opening new works from some of today’s top choreographers, this program evokes the different aspects of womanhood. The Dark Meadow Suite, Ekstasis and Errand into the Maze, all stunning Graham masterworks, tell diverse narratives of women searching for connection, self-discovery and empowerment. The Lamentation Variations by Bulareyaung Pagarlava, Nicolas Paul and Larry Keigwin reflect on Graham’s signature solo and her enduring influence. The program closes with Woodland, Pontus Lidberg’s popular, high-energy dance for 10 featuring a female soloist who is a dreamer, observer and outsider in a whimsical world — perhaps conjured by her own imagination.
