Satyric Festival Song Unique
Known as the mother of the modern movement, Graham’s influence is immensely profound on performing arts culture. Ahead of her contemporaries, she was the first dancer to perform at the White House and founded the renowned Martha Graham Dance Company in New York. She once said, “I have spent all my life with dance and being a dancer. It’s permitting life to use you in a very intense way. Sometimes it is not pleasant. Sometimes it is fearful. But nevertheless it is inevitable. (New York Times, 1985)” Since 1929, Graham danced professionally until her retirement in 1958; however, she continued to teach at her dance company until her death in 1991 at the age of 96.
