Talk: Eliot Smith: Inviting Martha Graham Back to the UK
@ Dance CityBook Now
02 March 2017
Eliot Smith, artistic director of Eliot Smith Company and an Associate Artist at Dance City, explains why her technique and legacy are still important and how today she still influences his choreographic work and teaching within the Company and elsewhere. He also projects how her work and training can be preserved for future generations of dancers and audiences.
This 60 minute special presentation will include an insight into Eliot Smith’s recent visit to The Martha Graham Centre of Contemporary Dance, New York as part of the Artist’s International Development Fund – funded and supported by Arts Council England and British Council- and the conversations and interviews he conducted with key figures in the dance world of Martha Graham.
