This year marks the 95th season of the Martha Graham Dance Company, and it commences online. February digital events include a Martha Matinee on February 6, which premieres a new work, Deo, by Maxine Doyle and Bobbi Jene Smith. The subject is the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone—Graham would approve!—and it features an original score by Lesley Flanigan. February 15 sees the livestreaming of a rehearsal in which the choreographer Sonya Tayeh creates new material for Graham’s 1952 dance Canticle for Innocent Comedians. And February 24 offers a Zoom Q&A on anything and everything Martha Graham. —L.J.
