Legendary 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/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.
