Hailed as “a master of visual composition” by Dance Magazine, Jessica Lang Dance seamlessly incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet into artfully engaging works that feature athletic and gifted performers. This New York City-based company enriches and inspires by immersing audiences in the spectacular beauty of gorgeous design, movement and music. Among the pieces to be performed are Tesseracts of Time, created in collaboration with architect Steven Holl, and Thousand Yard Stare, honoring wounded veterans and all of those affected by war.
