Koresh Dance Company
Reserve Tickets to this Free Performance
Created during the company’s 2018 “Made in Wickenburg” artist residency, La Danse is performed to an original musical composition by John Levis and poetry by Karl Mullen. The work combines tender, joyful, passionate and humorous interpretations of Matisse’s three versions of his expressionist painting.
Celebrating 30 years of innovative and engaging performance, the international dance ensemble Koresh Dance Company was founded in 1991 by Israeli-born Choreographer and Artistic Director Ronen Koresh. Presenting its audiences with an exciting and emotional blend of ballet, modern dance and jazz, Koresh’s style of choreography is both eloquent and explosive. Based in Philadelphia, this contemporary company has developed a vast repertoire of over 40 works that range from passionate and expressive to intimate and restrained. koreshdance.org
