PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Dance Company presents its spring program at the Kimmel Center from April 19th through the 21st. The theme is “The Big Bang!”
Listen to the podcast below…
“It’s about places in time,” says Joan Myers Brown, the artistic director and founder of Philadanco.
She says the performances will take the audience on a trip to ‘Danco’s past and future by resurrecting the 1970s ballet “Time and Space,” by the late Harold Pierson, and Milton Myers’s 1990s piece, “Love ‘n Pain.”
“’Love and Pain’– Aretha Franklin’s music,” says Brown. “It’s all women, and they got a lot of love and a lot of pain!”
The show includes a crowd favorite, “Look Who’s Coming to Dinner,” by Ray Mercer. Then the dancers will fast forward to The Big Bang– the signature piece — by choreographer Christopher Huggins.
“We’re going to go forward and backward and really show people that Philadanco has been around for a long time and that we’re part of the past and part of the future.”
