Today's guest is Janet Eilber. Janet has been Artistic Director of the Martha Graham Dance Company since 2005. Her direction has focused on creating new forms of audience access to the Graham masterworks. Earlier in her career, as a principal dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company, Janet worked closely with Martha Graham. She danced many of Graham’s greatest roles, had roles created for her by Graham, and was directed by Graham in most of the major roles of the repertoire. Apart from her work with Graham, Eilber has performed in films, on television and on Broadway directed by such greats as Agnes deMille and Bob Fosse and has received four Lester Horton Awards for her reconstruction and performance of seminal American modern dance.
Today's guest is Pat Catterson. Pat is a NYC-based choreographer, dancer, educator and writer, who has choreographed 111 dances but, although her biggest pleasure is still making her own dances, these days she is more known as a dancer and rehearsal assistant for Yvonne Rainer, as well as a custodian of Rainer’s early works.
