Jessica Lang Dance is a contemporary dance company based in New York dedicated to “the beauty of movement and music.” A dance critic in the LA Times wrote that Jessica Lang “has the knack for conceiving a complete universe in each dance — distinctive in its look, mood, sound and atmosphere.” The Philadelphia program will offer these various universes in an array of highly musical and physically exciting dances, including Thousand Yard Stare, a riveting tribute to veterans set to a Beethoven string quartet. The title refers to the blank and bewildered gaze of the shell-shocked soldier returning from war. The Los Angeles Times notes the “ballet is spare yet evocative and gorgeous throughout.”
The performance is a matinee at 3:00; the bus will leave Pem Arch at 2:00. Tickets are $15 at a group rate; transportation is free.
