Dance Companies Plan Boisterous Season
Dance enthusiasts can enjoy home-grown dance companies
as well as impressive imports from as close as Philadelphia to the
distant reaches of Siberia and the African Republic of Guinea. From
Philadelphia, Rennie Harris Puremovement, one of the hottest new
fusion forms, makes its first area appearance at McCarter Theater,
February 7. Returning companies with flair and a fan base appearing
at State Theater include Ronald K. Brown’s Evidence (October 30) and
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (February 10).
Returning heavy hitters of American dance include Twyla Tharp Dance
(September 25) and Paul Taylor Dance Company (May 15). To see what
the Mark Morris Dance Group is up, you’ll have to travel a bit farther
this year. They won’t be at McCarter Theater, but you can see the
company at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark, November
7 to 9.
