The Martha Graham Company will perform in Israel for the first time in 30 years at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center. The company will perform an array of works by the Graham Company and American choreographer Robert Wilson, and will include excerpts from "Chronicle," and "Maple Leaf Rag," as well as "Snow on the Mesa," and "Appalachian Spring." Graham passed away in 1991 at the age of 96 causing the company to freeze activities due to the publicized scandal involving property rights and inheritance that arose. A gifted visionary and also called the queen of modern dance, Graham changed the way dancers use their bodies on stage and opened a window of opportunity out of which most major contemporary choreographers took a leap. The company will perform from November 1to November 5.
