PHILADANCO! Mixed Repertory

Sat, February 22nd, 2020
8:00 pm
- 9:30 pm

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in the 2019–2020 season, PHILADANCO!, founded by Joan Myers Brown, has since its inception been committed to the preservation of African-American dance traditions and opening of professional doors to Black dancers. For this touring season, four brand new works have been commissioned from PHILADANCO! alumni, all of which respond to an organizing message of social justice. Now 86 years old, Joan Myers Brown will be touring with the company and delivering workshops and lectures about her storied career. Brown received the 2012 National Medal of the Arts from President Barack Obama, who cited Brown for carving out “an artistic haven for African American dancers and choreographers to innovate, create, and share their unique visions with the national and global dance communities.”
