sjDANCEco’s performance at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage is an opportunity to demonstrate the power and poetry of Dance through choreography that is both Contemporary and Classic Modern – spanning more than 60 years of creativity. Through the pathos of José Limón’s powerful masterwork “The Exiles”, inspired by the tumultuous exodus during and following WWII, to Maria Basile’s buoyant and stirring “The Upward Spiral”, a new work by Gabriel Mata that merges dance and physical theater, and finally a group collaborative that explores the multi-generational experiences of the cast, the program resonates and celebrates our shared human experiences as we continue to investigate and define our place in its ever-changing dynamics.
sjDANCEco members Gabriel Mata, Kaliesha Gardeen, Maria Basie, Gary Masters, and Fred Mathews will be performing.
