Patti LuPone and director Harold Prince rehearsing EvitaMartha Swope, who started out as a dance student with a Brownie camera, developed into the premier photographic documenter of performance in New York. The free exhibition focuses on Swope's photographs of the rehearsal process, highlighting her understanding of movement while illuminating how dance and theater are created. Drawn from the photographer's archives, which the Library for the Performing Arts acquired in 2010, the exhibition features striking images from throughout the photographer's 40-year career.
