Pat Graney Company: Faith

Highlighting the Alpert Award in the Arts


“An hourlong immersion in the feminine psyche. Its movement is velvet-edged, unhurried, mesmerizing.” —Seattle Times

Los Angeles premiere


Thanks to a national American Masterpieces program, Alpert Award-winning choreographer Pat Graney is restaging seminal dances of breathtaking stagecraft from a rich span of her creative lifeThroughout her 30 years of innovation, the Seattle-based artist’s vision of dance has reached widely, and her contemporary movement-based works have drawn vocabulary from sources as varied as ballet, martial arts, gymnastics and American Sign Language. More importantly, she has developed sumptuous visual languages, using qualities of time, light and ritual to sculpt her dances into powerful meditations on human action and culture. In Faith, performed by an all-female cast, Graney’s complex manipulations of composition and theatrical form allow her to explore potently re-imagined representations of history, religiosity and transcendence.
