Dance Theatre of Harlem
Fri, Jan 28, 2022, 7:30 pm
Carlson Family Stage
Now a singular presence in the ballet world, the Dance Theatre of Harlem Company tours nationally and internationally, presenting a powerful vision for ballet in the 21st century. The 17-member, multi-ethnic company performs a forward-thinking repertoire that includes treasured classics, neoclassical works by George Balanchine and resident choreographer Robert Garland, as well as innovative contemporary works that use the language of ballet to celebrate African American culture. This program includes the Northrop Centennial Commission, Higher Ground, with choreography by Robert Garland and music by Stevie Wonder.
This event will be captioned, with other accessibility services available upon request.
“The work [Higher Ground], by the company’s resident choreographer, Robert Garland, was vital in that moment but feels prescient after the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter protests that took over cities this summer. The combination of Mr. Garland’s rich movement vocabulary, which mines and melds ballet with modern dance and street forms, and Mr. Wonder’s music was intoxicating — a promise for the future.” —Gia Kourlas, The New York Times
