Jessica Lang Dance Company
In the few years since its founding, the Jessica Lang Dance Company has already toured the dynamic, visually stunning works of its eponymous choreographer around the world. During this program, Lang’s distinctive style—a blend of striking design, traditional ballet vocabulary, and contemporary sensibilities—travels from New York to Detroit with a program of shorts culled from the company’s repertoire.
- Lines Cubed: First performed as part of Jessica Lang Dance’s full-company debut, this piece uses lines, symmetry, and primary colors to, as BroadwayWorld.com puts it, “[make] the audience feel as if [it] were watching a moving painting.”
- Mendelssohn / Incomplete: Six dancers—three women and three men—fold together as partners while a sumptuous score by Mendelssohn seems to carry them away.
- Among the Stars: Writing for Oberon’s Grove, Philip Gardner described this piece as an “ecstatic duet,” adding that “the dancers share fleeting moments of intimacy while ever-aware that the sea of stars will soon separate them again.”
- Also slated for performance: The Calling (excerpt from Splendid Isolation II) | White (film) | i.n.k.
