MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY It’s always illuminating to see the company founded by the modern-dance pioneer, but this also celebrates the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” with Graham’s interpretation of the groundbreaking score. The engagement also includes “Lamentation Variations” and a new work by Nacho Duato. Aug. 21-25, $45-$75. Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, 358 George Carter Road, Becket. 413-243-0745, www.jacobspillow.org

ABRAHAM.IN.MOTION Award-winning choreographer Kyle Abraham and his company bring his latest work, the evening-length “Pavement,” to the Pillow. Set to music ranging from Bach to Motown, the work was partly inspired by the John Singleton film “Boyz n the Hood” and reflects Abraham’s trademark fusion of ballet, modern, and urban dance styles. Aug. 21-25, $22-$38. Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, 358 George Carter Road, Becket. 413-243-0745, www.jacobspillow.org
