PHILADANCO Spring ConcertsApr 8th, 2009 | By | Category: Dance Stories
Four choreographers who although are not new to the field of dance are now creating excitement with their work across the country. Some you might have seen or have heard of, others maybe not, but they have emerged into the limelight causing a stir with creations that challenge audiences and dancers alike.
In a provocative program that puts the four of them on the stage together for the first time is an opportunity for you to watch them as they evolve into the “hit dance makers” of the future. With new movement vocabularies, innovative concepts and daring new music you will see dance without the trap-pings; (shocking but valueless nudity and, special effects that often disguises true art). With new music and clever costuming the excellence of the world renowned well-trained Philadanco dancers becomes even more apparent.
In programs beginning April 30, through May 3, 2009 at their home theater, the Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center, the company will bring this new excitement to Philadelphia dance aficionado and new audiences alike. Your favorite dancers will explode on the stage in new and interesting work. Also, new dancers to the company will bring a delightful energy with their talent and infectious anticipation of these upcoming concerts.
Choreographers includes former company members, Hope Boykin (currently a member of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), Zane booker (Artistic Director (SLJ Arts Initiative), Camille Brown, former member Rennie Harris, Pure Movement and Tony Powell. In ballets yet untitled but under construction the forecast is exciting, daring and innovative dance.
