Three giants of American modern dance, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor, will share a program of works, two of which originally premiered at ADF. Graham 2 will perform Martha Graham's Diversion of Angels (1948) with a romantic score by Norman Dello Joio and themes from the infinite aspects of love. Stephen Petronio Company will appear in Merce Cunningham's Tread (1970). With decor designed by Bruce Nauman, Tread is a playful dance filled with unexpected partnering, human entanglements, and all of the choreographic complexity that defines Cunningham's work. Lastly, Taylor 2 will dance Paul Taylor's Piazzolla Caldera (1997), Taylor's exploration of the sizzling, sultry culture of tango.
