Every Soulls. Circus (1939) Every Soul is a Cirrus premiered at the St James Theater in New York Oty in December, 1939.WithasetbyPaulStapp.. andascore by Paul Nordoff, it was hailed as Graham's entrance into the world of theater. Inspired by a poem of Vachel lindsay. a traveling troubadour popular in the 1920s. Graham's dana! created a world when! fantasies of romance and intrigue could be played out in the center ring. The critic Margaret Uoyd called it Macircus that neverwas. in tent or arena. but might be, inyour heart or mine."
Newly popular theories of human behavior by Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung had posited a dynamic inner life. and artists like Graham were quick to embrace the subterranean world of the unconscious; Every Soul is a Circus revealed "a woman's inner landscape: she wrote in program notes. The central figure is a dilettante, a bored housewife who imagines herself as the Empress of the Arena the center of a romantic triangle between a pompous ringmaster and an antic acrobat. As always.. Graham was making theater out of her awn life; the Ringrnasterwas Erick. Hawkins. who had integrated. her all-female company the year befon! in American Document. and who was her lcr.rer. and the Acrobat was Merce Cunningham appearing with the Graham Company for the first time at the age of 20. An alter ego. titled the Spectator. sits on the sidelines throughout the action commenting on our heroine's behavior. She is alternately approving. disdainful surprised. and non plussed. "Throughout the ClrOlS of her life. every woman is her own most appreciative spectator.~Graham stated
New York Times critic John Martin p r o n o u n c e d Every Soul i s a Circus ~ous and satirical- It is one of the
rare dances that demonstrate Graham's funny bone; as in later dances such as Acrooots of God (1960) and Maple Leaf Rag (1990l Graham made herself the object of choreographic humor - an addled female negotiating the circus of life. a choreographer beset by unruly
dance,; ProgromnotebyEllenGroff.
LamentationVariations (2007) Lamentation Variations is an event that was originally conceived to commemorate the anniversary of 9/ was premiered on that date in 2007. The work opens with a film from the early 1930s of Martha Graham. We see her dancing movements from her then new. and now iconic. solo. Lamentation. The variations that follow were developed under specific creative conditions by choreographers Larry Keigwin. Richard Move. and Bulareyaung Pagarlava Each was asked to create a spontaneous choreographic sketch of their reaction to the Graham filrt\ and was required to adhere to the following conditions: 10 hours of rehearsal public domain music or silence. basic costumes. and lighting design. Though it was planned to be performed on only one occasion. the audience reception for Lamentation Variations was such that it has been added to the permanent repertoryofthe Martha Graham Dance Company.
Night Journey (1947) Commissioned by the Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation Night Journey was first performed in Cambridge. MA. as part of Harvard University's Symposium on Music Criticism The dance is part of Graham's Greek cycle and like Cave ofthe Heart (l946l based up:m Medea.
and Clytemnestra (19S8~inspired by t he Orestio. Graham's interpretation makes t he woman's experience central. When the dance premiered in NE"N" York City, Walter Terry wrote that Graham had succeeded in Ntransfer[ing] the action to t he area where only Jocasta's heart and mind are real:
According to t he myth. Oedipus was t he son of King Laius of Thebes and Queen Jocasta At his birth. an oracle prophesied that he would murder his father and so he was abandoned on a desolate mountainside. He was found t here and protected by a Corinthian shepherd and grE"N" to manhood as the adopted son of the King of Corinth. Once again. an oracle predicted that Oedipus would slay his father and marry his mother. Thinking the King of Corinth his true father, he fled the city, and in his wanderings met quarreled with and finally killed a stranger who was King Laius of Thebes. his real father . Oedipus traveled on to Thebes. solved the riddle of the Sphinx. and was rE"N"arded with the throne and the murdered King's widO'N", Queen Jocasta. He reigned nobly until a plague ravaged Thebes and the oracle declared that only banishment of t he murderer of Laius would save t he city.When the truth was discovered and
t he incestuous relationship revealed Jocasta took her own life. Oedipus blinded himself and wandered the earth an outcast.
In her retelling of the Oedipus myth. Graham was almost certainly influenced by contemporary interest in psychology andtheemerging(inAmerica)theoriesof FreudandJung. theories which explored t he darker recesses of the human psyche, including erotic passion and t he powerful sexual dynamics operating within the family . In Sophocles' Oedipus Rex, Jocasta's experience is largely unexamined. But in Night Journey, t he complex interweaving of emotions between mother and son between mother and lover are paramount; in the central duet between Oedipus and Jocasta passionate lovemaking is interrupted by maternal memories; t he infant suckling at Jocasta's breast t he child cradled in her arms. And Graham's command of symbolic language is never more powerfully expressed the rope which is the instrument of her death evokes both the marriage VO'N"S which tie Jocasta to Oedipus the King and t he umbilical cord which once bound her to herson
