92Y Harkness Dance Festival: Jessica Lang Dance
Jessica Lang Dance
Lang was formerly a dancer with Twyla Tharp, and, notes The Guardian, "like Tharp she has the gift of cramming together an eclectic range of colours and ideas without losing thought with her individual sensibility.” Founded in 2011, Jessica Lang Dance is a New York City-based dance company dedicated to creating and performing work that enriches and inspires global audiences by immersing them in the beauty of movement and music. The company will showcase Lang’s unique voice and signature style, which incorporates striking design elements and transforms classical ballet language into artfully crafted, emotionally engaging contemporary work, with Solo Bach (2008), set to Bach’s “The Six Sonatas & Partitas for Violin Solo,” Mendelssohn/Incomplete (2011), set to Mendelssohn’s “Concerto No. 1 II Andante con moto tranquillo,” Sweet Silent Thought (2016) inspired by and featuring Shakespeare’s sonnets set to an original score, and Untitled (2016) and Thousand Yard Stare (2015), both set to music by Ludwig van Beethoven.
