Garth Fagan Dance

Garth Fagan’s ever-evolving dance language draws on the weight of modern dance, the speed and precision of ballet, the energy of Afro-Caribbean dance, and the rule-breaking experimentation of the post-moderns. These elements intertwine not only in the well-loved signature pieces he will be performing, but also in a commissioned work that pays homage to Geoffrey Holder’s illustrious legacy. To further celebrate his spirit, Holder’s widow, Carmen de Lavallade, will perform his moving rendition of the story of creation based on a James Weldon Johnson poem suggesting life’s graceful cycle. Harlem’s spirit-filled Ebony Ecumenical Ensemble opens the evening with their powerful gospel voices, celebrating African American musical heritage.
