“One of the most exciting, innovative, and delightful dance companies in the entire world.”—The New York Times
Co-presented by DANCECleveland
One of modern dance’s most esteemed companies returns to ADF with classic Taylor works, Arden Court, a beautiful and utterly joyful dance that depicts the many facets of romantic and platonic love, and the definitive Paul Taylor work, Esplanade, a work at once playful, somber, romantic, and explosive. The company will also perform Kyle Abraham’s Only the Lonely, an eight-dancer suite set to recordings of pop songs by jazz-singer Shirley Horn that visualizes themes of loneliness and despair from multiple viewpoints. ADF and DANCECleveland will pay tribute to Lillian Weisberg, co-founder of DANCECleveland, who turned 100 years old this year and who has been a champion of dance for both organizations.
