JANUARY 13 & 14, 2017 | 8:00 PM
(Black PR Wire) The Duncan Theatre welcomes PHILADANCO to kick-off their 30th Anniversary season of Modern Dance. This acclaimed American dance company is known for blending African American-based dance with ballet, jazz, and modern through diverse and innovative choreography.
The company's ability to speak to its audience shines through in works to be performed, such as "A Movement for Five", a socially relevant piece by Dawn Marie Bazemore inspired by the injustices surrounding the "Central Park Five" (the black and Latino teenagers wrongly convicted of rape in New York City in 1989) to the exuberant and introspective "Super8!".
Prepare to be immersed in an evening of intense and joyful performance by skilled professional dancers.
