Legendary Martha Graham principal dancer Miki Orihara’s second solo concert reflects upon the lineage of dance, from classical modern to the present. Resonance II includes works by choreographers Merce Cunningham, Lar Lubovitch, Charlotte Griffin, and Tanroh Ishida in collaboration with Orihara. Orihara draws upon her intimate knowledge of classical modern dance to inform her personal view of contemporary work, while simultaneously using her contemporary explorations as a vessel to shine new light on her understanding and interpretation of works by past masters.

Orihara’s residency at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center is part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), which receives major support from The Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Howard Gilman Foundation, and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, which also provided commissioning support for Resonance II. Additional support provided by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, the Harkness Foundation for Dance, and the Japan Foundation.

The film Resonance will be screened one hour prior to each performance.
