Jessica Lang Dance
November 30 – December 1, 2018 · Zellerbach Theatre
Runtime: 1 hour, 47 minutes
"A master of visual composition" (Dance Magazine), Bucks County native Jessica Lang is a superstar in the dance world. Called "sophisticated and intelligent" (The Los Angeles Times) and "moving and masterful" (Chicago Sun-Times), Lang's ballet-based yet contemporary-driven works are rich with stunning movement, compelling musicality and beautiful cinematic composition. In a program of world and Philadelphia premieres, this company will transform how you experience dance.
It was recently announced that Jessica Lang Dance is disbanding come April 2019, so these are the final east coast performances by this beautiful company. Don't miss your chance to see them perform one last time!
