CALVIN’S STAGE MOMENT: In 1990, Calvin Klein created costumes for Martha Graham’s “Maple Leaf Rag” production. Collaborating with Graham directly, Klein designed low-slung skirts to accentuate the torso, and other pieces that are still used for the production worldwide. Through Saturday, Klein’s designs are once again in the spotlight, as the Martha Graham Dance Company will performs “Maple Leaf Rag” and several other dances at Paris’ Théâtre du Châtelet. There’s no need, however, to fly to Paris to sample some vintage Calvin: The production moves to New York University’s Skirball Center May 12 to 16.
COAST TO COAST: The Art of Elysium has set its sights on the East Coast. The Los Angeles-based charity — known on the Hollywood party circuit for its annual pre-Golden Globes soiree — opened an office in Harlem last week and is throwing a bash in Manhattan to celebrate.
Co-hosts including Joy Bryant will be in attendance at the fete, which will take place on May 1 at quirky downtown hotel The Jane, and will feature a live performance by Santigold. Proceeds from the evening will benefit The Art of Elysium, which encourages high-profile actors, artists and musicians to donate their resources to children with serious medical conditions.
