There will be the expected Graham works:
Every Soul Is a Circus
Deaths and Entrances
There will be works from outside choreographers:
Lar Lubovitch -- new Lamentation variation
Yvonne Rainier (!) -- premiere
Mary Wigman -- Witch Dance (revival)
And there will be an evening given over to Graham II and university dance groups performing works by Graham, Anna Sokolow and Charles Weidman.

I haven't seen any of the Lamentation project works, but I've heard mixed reports.

No. I'm going by the Joyce listing which doesn't specify the works for the Graham/Sokolow/Weidman evening. Interesting that Graham is morphing into a repertory company along the lines of Ailey and Limon.
Any idea which Weidman?

Which is not to say Graham shouldn't do more to show choreographers continuing in the Graham tradition, but these would be lesser stars and harder to attract funding/audiences/media attention with....(?)
