Miki Orihara; A Japanese Dancer in America

February 22, 7 pm8 pm.
Appalachian Spring Side Bend

Miki Orihara was 18 years old when she arrived in New York to study with Martha Graham, in whose company she was a soloist from 1987 to 2015. Along the way she received a Bessie Award and Dance Magazine called her “the kind of Graham dancer who comes along once in a decade.” She has performed on Broadway, in films, with various dance companies, and has started a series of solo concerts that include her own choreography, with the aim of defining who she is now, how she got to be this artist and honoring her mentors and teachers. Orihara will present and perform.
