Google Celebrates Martha Graham

A little shot of lunchtime beauty: Google celebrates legendary choreographer Martha Graham's 117th birthday today with an animated doodle, produced by artist Ryan Woodward . You can see it on, of course, but Woodward also has a version up on Vimeo that features a stirring soundtrack:


Woodward worked with a dancer and choreographer from the Martha Graham Dance Company to produce the video, which pays tribute to five iconic Graham works . Curious to learn more about the process? Tune into a live chat with Woodward on the Washington Post 's website today at noon EST.
