In Dynamic Women of Dance, renowned female choreographers unite to dazzle audiences with a stylistically diverse exhibition of kinetic beauty. Powerful legs soar through an enormous repertoire of footwork, from fluid leaps to more unconventional moves such as collapsing conga lines and staccato character walks. Behind the visual tapestry, Sidra Bell and Camille A. Brown take a reprieve from helming their own eponymous companies, weaving their backgrounds of sensual, often fantastical, choreography and ancestral storytelling into the collective. Kiesha Lalama culls from time spent on Broadway and as a gymnast to infuse her moves with athletic prowess, whether it be flinging a fellow dancer across the stage or hurling a pointe shoe at a texting audience member. Kim Bears-Bailey, a former principal dancer at The Philadelphia Dance Company, rounds out the ensemble. The August Wilson Center resident dance ensemble, named as one of “25 to Watch” by Dance Magazine in 2012, help realize the impresarios’ creations, bringing their inimitable energy to the stage and warning visitors about the feral stagehands nesting in the wings.

The choreographers’ work will grace the stage inside the sleek, modern August Wilson Center. Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the center’s two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the confidence of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat.

August Wilson Center for African American Culture

Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the August Wilson Center commands a striking architectural confidence. Its two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the bravado of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat. Within the steal and glass, a 486-seat theater hosts plays, dance performances, and lectures while multiple exhibition galleries display art and cultural treasures for the community. The center draws on the legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania, infusing each curation with a celebration of rich history.
