Former Twyla Tharp dancer and choreographer Jessica Lang and her company aim to make their performances full sensory experiences into which onlookers, whether they be balletomanes or dance novices, can completely submerge themselves. Her work blends the fluidity and grounded quality of contemporary dance and the beautiful lines of traditional ballet to great modern effect.
On this very special evening, Lang, whose choreography is “reliably sophisticated and achingly beautiful” (Chicago Tribune), will present the world premiere of a brand new work, developed here on campus and set to music by Tony Bennett, to mark the occasion of Bennett’s birthday, as well as The PAC’s own 40th anniversary.
SAVE THE DATE! The PAC Gala will take place on this very same night, beginning with cocktails and dinner before the performance, and desserts and drinks after. Details to come! For more information contact Katherine King, our Associate Director of Development, at Katherine.King@purchase.edu or (914) 251-6178.
