Here + Now
- Date: Mar 20 - Mar 29, 2020
- Venue: August Wilson African American Cultural Center
In partnership with the August Wilson African American Cultural Center.
This mixed-repertory production brings together three celebrated choreographers to create stunning dance for the here and now in the August Wilson 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.” Staycee Pearl, artist in residence and local choreographer, will create a brand new ballet for the program. And the beloved popular music of Paul Simon sets the stage for Dwight Rhoden’s physical and visceral Simon Said.
