The great Graham’s California roots

In my “pre-talk” prior to Martha Graham Dance Company‘s performance at Valley Performing Arts Center this Saturday night, I make the case that the impact and duration of Graham’s career start-up in Los Angeles has gone woefully under reported. Here Graham poses with her first partner, Ted Shawn, in “Malaguena” (1921) — in a California setting.

After we set the historic record straight, I will have the privilege of interviewing Graham company Artistic Director Janet Eilber. Please attend.
