Pomare - Narcissus Rising, the powerful solo, originally danced by the choreographer, that helped propel Pomare into the forefront of modern dance. Donna Clark will repeat her acclaimed performance as a "biker chick."
Pomare - Las Desenamoradas, (company premiere) a 1967 ensemble work set to music by Coltrane and based on Lorca's play "House of Bernarda Alba."
Pomare - Radeau (Raft), created in 1994 and depicting a stormy sea voyage to safety from strife-torn Haiti.
DeJesus - Mending Minds (premiere), inspired by caretakers and asking who will care for the caring?
DeJesus - Evolution, a playful company dance set to the irresistible rhythms of Tito Puento.
