*Artistic Director Janet Eilber conceived of Lamentation Variations in 2007 to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11, giving choreographers the opportunity to create new interpretations of Graham’s iconic solo, Lamentation. Although the series was envisioned as a one-time performance, the audience reception was so positive that it has been added to the repertory of the Martha Graham Dance Company.
