At The Soraya, we’re helping to make history. Students of music, dance, and American culture know that few individuals contributed more to the advancement of art in the 20th century...
When Martha Graham premiered a new, full-company work with a poetic title, “Canticle for Innocent Comedians,” it was the Spring of 1952.
Even as light emerges at the end of the tunnel, the struggle to stand up the arts sector, post-pandemic, is merely beginning.
We’re proud to announce that The Soraya is making its first appearance on Netflix, available for streaming starting today, October 23.
The Soraya joins our partner, the Martha Graham Dance Company, in celebrating this week’s 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote and propelled the ongoing struggle to guarantee those rights for all women. We honor the historic importance of the 19th through the lens of Martha Graham’s own social activism – so evident in works such as American Document, Panorama, Chronicle, and Immediate Tragedy.
