Time Out says

The first-ever edition of the City Center Dance Festival concludes with a visit from the revered Martha Graham Dance Company, which is devoted to preserving and expanding the legacy of the queen of modern dance. Presented in three different programs, the run includes two stone-cold Graham classics, Appalachian Spring and Chronicle, along with the world premiere of Hofesh Shechter's Cave and the New York premiere of a new version of Graham's lost 1952 dance Canticle for Innocent Comedians as imagined by eight choreographers—led by Sonya Tayeh—and set to an original score by Jason Moran.

Program A, on April 6 and 9, includes ChronicleCave and Canticle. Program B, a matinee on April 10, includes Appalachian Spring and Canticle. The Gala on April 7 features excerpts from those two works along with Cave and Graham's Ritual to the Sun from Acts of Light.
