Garth Fagan Dance

December 3, 2017 2 – 3:30 p.m. November 29 – December 3

Internationally acclaimed Garth Fagan Dance brings “power, grace and its unique brand of high-octane ebullience” (Fjords Review) to the Nazareth College Arts Center.

Winner of a Tony Award, London's Olivier Award​, Australia's Helpmann Award, and many others, Garth Fagan's ever-evolving dance language draws on many sources: modern dance, Afro-Caribbean, ballet, and post-modern. The company continues to be cited for its excellence and originality. Five members have won Bessie Awards—Fagan, Steve Humphrey, Norwood Pennewell, Natalie Rogers, and Sharon Skepple—and Lewis Segal (The Los Angeles Times) said "Consider the Fagan program a prime example of the versatility and sophistication of concert dance in this new century."

Enjoy premieres from both Garth Fagan and Norwood Pennewell and spectacular revivals during the culmination of the company’s 45th anniversary celebration. "...it was American master Garth Fagan who best fused technical virtuosity with conceptual depth... soul-deep conviction and spectacular flair….the indispensable dance experience of the year” (The Los Angeles Times).

Single tickets: $40–$55 (eligible for Arts Center 15% and 20% subscriber discounts)
