BNY Mellon Presents Here + Now – Postponed
- Date: Mar 20 - Mar 29, 2020
- Venue: August Wilson African American Cultural Center
Please read our Health Update for information regarding this performance.
In partnership with the August Wilson African American Cultural Center.
This mixed-repertory production brings together celebrated choreographers to create stunning dance for the here and now in the August Wilson African American Cultural Center. The Quiet Dance, from Pittsburgh native Kyle Abraham, captures the feelings of frustration and isolation through sweeping movement, beginning in silence and then carried by the gentleness of Bill Evans’ arrangement of Bernstein’s “Some Other Time.” The beloved popular music of Paul Simon sets the stage for Dwight Rhoden’s physical and visceral Simon Said. Nacho Duato’s Duende melds music and movement, infusing magic into the music of Claude Debussy. Finally, PBT Artist in Residence and local choreographer Staycee Pearl presents the world premier of Skin + Saltwater, a visionary piece created for the PBT Company.
