Renowned for its innovation, creativity, and preservation of predominantly African-American traditions in dance, Philadanco is now celebrating their 50th anniversary season under founder and artistic director Joan Myers Brown. This performance for young audiences and their families showcases a rich and varied program of some of their most powerful works by today’s most exciting contemporary choreographers: Between the Lines (choreographed by Francisco Gella with music by Philip Glass and Gidon Kramer), Endangered Species (choreographed by Anthony Burrell with music by Darryl Hoffman and Max Richter), and Enemy Behind the Gates (choreographed by Christopher Huggins with music by Steve Reich).
