Check out this blog on the process of rehearsing Martha Graham’s early work, Steps in the Street. Working with former Graham dancer, Jennifer Conley, BMC and HC dancers are learning this section of Graham’s 1936 work, Chronicle, a commentary of the devastation and isolation that war creates. Students were introduced first to the Graham technique during five weeks of classes with former Graham soloist, Carrie Ellmore-Tallitsch, and then met with Conley over three intensive weekends to re-build the work. It will be performed as part of the Spring Dance Concert on April 25th and 26th.
