Martha Graham (Pittsburgh, 1894 – New York, 1991) was an American dancer and choreographer, whose influence on modern dance is equivalent to that of Picasso in the world of visual arts, or Stravinsky in music. In 1998, TIME magazine named her ‘Dancer of the Century’. Great performers such as Bette Davis, Kirk Douglas, Madonna, Liza Minelli and Gregory Peck learned from her how to use the body as an instrument for expression.

In 1926, Graham founded the Martha Graham Dance Company, achieving fame for her innovations in modern dance. It was and still is a leading company in contemporary dance, since its foundation, receiving applause in over 50 countries and performing at the finest venues, event by the Pyramids in Egypt, and the ancient Herodes Atticus Theatre at the Acropolis in Athens. Today, the Martha Graham Dance Company continues to give powerful performances of the masterpieces created by its founder, together with others by contemporary artists.
