Last spring, the Martha Graham Dance Company visited the Carolina campus, bringing with them a suite of contemporary variations on Graham’s landmark 1930 solo Lamentation.  This harrowing portrayal of grief helped to define modern dance with its unsparing embodiment of raw emotion.


Inspired and informed by this visit, UNC students created their own Lamentation Variations under interdisciplinary faculty guidance, developing these responses to grief through movement, visual art, and the written word.


UNC-Chapel Hill dance faculty member Heather Tatreau curates this series of dances — the first student dance project ever to appear in the Process Series.
