The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a leader in the development of contemporary dance, and is recognized for its model audience engagement activities.  The company has received international acclaim from audiences in over 50 countries throughout North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East, and has performed at most of the major venues of the world. In addition, the Company has produced several award-winning films broadcast on PBS.

The Company will be performing Acts of Light, Chronicle and Lamentation Variations by Bulareyaung Pagarlava, Larry Keigwin, and Richard Move.

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
