PREVIEWS OF UPCOMING PERFORMANCES

Hometown choreographer Iquail Shaheed brings his company back and returns to an iconic piece about the black ballerina. Dance Iquail presents Black Swan, a 90-minute dance-based production choreographed to the music of artist and activist Nina Simone. Black Swan runs February 22-23 at the Performance Garage, 1515 Brandywine Street.

Annenberg Center Live will present the Dance Theatre of Harlem, Friday, March 1 (8 PM) and Saturday, March 2 (2 PM and 8 PM). The program includes premiere of Philadelphia native and DTH Resident Choreographer Robert Garland’s Nyman String Quartet #2; Harlem on My Mind (Darrell Grand Moultrie; choreographer); and Change (Dianne McIntyre, choreographer).

The company, led by Artistic & Executive Director Christine Cox, will present the East Coast Premiere of gravity-defying, viral video star Lil Buck’s Express, an East Premiere by movement visionary and Philadelphia favorite Nicolo Fonte, alongside a World Premiere by 2019 Choreographic Fellow Katarzyna Skarpetowska. 

The critically-acclaimed Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D), one of the country’s only Asian- American, contemporary dance companies, is pleased to announce its Spring home season performances at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.

Koresh Dance Company’s Artistic Director, Roni Koresh will present a world premiere inspired by Matisse’s famous painting “La Danse”. This production combines tender, joyful, passionate and humorous interpretation of Matisse’s three permutations of the painting starting with “the joy of life” followed by the two versions of “La Danse”; the work will be danced to an original musical composition by John Levis and poetry by Karl Mullen.
