Garth Fagan Dance

December 9, 2018 2 – 4 p.m. December 5 – December 9

For nearly 50 years, the critics have raved that “an evening spent with Garth Fagan Dance is a humanity-affirming event” (Los Angeles Times).

A true Rochester treasure, internationally acclaimed Garth Fagan Dance packs a punch with Fagan’s signature technique which marries the gravity of modern dance, the precision of ballet, and the power of Afro-Caribbean styles.

Garth Fagan Dance will perform two dynamic world premieres and three vibrant revivals from the company’s rich archive. The new works include The North Star by Garth Fagan – a celebration of the life of Frederick Douglass on the bicentennial of his birth – and an impressionistic work, Distant Kin, set to electronic music and choreographed by 40 year veteran Norwood Pennewell. The program also includes In Memoriam, created in 2001 as a moving tribute to the victims and families of 9/11, and to the influential lives recently lost: Aretha Franklin, John McCain, Arthur Mitchell, and Paul Taylor.

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