Martha Graham

Born today (11 May) in 1894, Martha Graham, the dance pioneer who not only revolutionised modern dance but married it with theatre, music, literature, and art in a dazzling and emotional way.
Despite critics and a public who didn't initially understand her work, Graham was so fiercely dedicated to her art that she became one of the 20th century's most important influences on modern dance.

Graham was a dancer, choreographer, and teacher for more than 70 years, and during that time changed the landscape of dance forever.
