Today's archive photo is of Yuriko Kikuchi (just Yuriko for those in-the-know). On November 26 she will receive a Martha Hill lifetime achievement award. In addition to being a member of the Graham Company, Yuriko directed her own troupe, the Yuriko Dance Company from 1967 to 1973. She received an honorary doctorate from the Boston Conservatory in 2006. Here's a video of Yuriko coaching Eugene Lang College students in Graham's Chronicle: http://www.dancemedia.com/v/375.
